If you’re on fall break this could be an EXCELLENT activity! The Desert Botanical Garden offers free admission the second Tuesday of each month (which means today 10/8 we all get in free)! They are open until 8 PM.
From their website: “The Garden hosts Community Day the second Tuesday of every month, where admission is complimentary.“
General admission is usually $24.95-$29.95 for adults so this is truly a bargain!
