Garden of the Gods
Garden of the Gods – FREEThis place should be a National Monument, but there's a reason why it's not. The land was donated to the city with the contractual understanding that it would be designated as a city park and an entrance fee would never be charged. You can drive around the loop and choose to hike as many trails as you wish, if you can find a parking space. It is free, that is true, but if you go to the visitor center, you will be charged to watch their 15-minute film, eat at their café, or buy something from the gift shop. I'm just waiting for them to start charging for parking.
The Grand Palace
I was glad I did explore a little further, because I came upon what can only be described as really the only truly beautiful part of Brussels – The Grand Place. In this city of nice, but uniformly grey buildings, here was architecture with embellishment. Originally a market, this place continues to feel like the heart of Brussels in it’s hustle and bustle. The Town Hall dominates the square, with the no less impressive, but smaller guildhalls all around.
