Cruise & Walk to the Sawtooth Botanical Gardens

Rent a cruiser bike and discover one of the hidden gems of Ketchum, the Sawtooth Botanical Gardens. This meticulously tended garden is a celebration of cultivated plants as well as those native to Rocky Mountains, all of them with one trait in common: they thrive at high altitude. Available any day of the week until Labor Day Weekend. The ride is 7 miles roundtrip from the Limelight, and cruiser bikes are available for hotel guests through our on-site rental/retailer Sturtevant’s.

Stargazing at Ketchum

Because of its relative isolation in Central Idaho, Ketchum is the perfect place to see the stars ... like all of them! Limited light pollution and clear Western skies mean you can see the Milky Way, shooting stars and satellites nearly every night of the week. We want to make viewing the stars as easy as possible. Use our complimentary binoculars and download a Star Map to explore the Ketchum skies.
