While snowy, cold days bring charm during the holidays, during the months that follow the chilly temps can leave us feeling blue. Since spring time is still a far way off, when you’re feeling like you need an escape from all the gray, pay a visit to The Lincoln Park Conservatory, located directly adjacent to the zoo in Lincoln Park!
The historic nineteenth century building, constructed of iron and glass sets the tone for the beauty you’ll find inside its walls. Its filled with exotic plants, ancient ferns, and ornate flowers. Its offerings will capture the attention of anyone visiting-even if you don’t have a green thumb or an interest in botany. There are beautiful surprises around every corner! Once described as “a paradise under glass” head over to be transported far away..
There are events held often at the conservatory, so if you’re looking to delve deeper into all this place has to offer visit, check them out online. Admission to the conservatory is always free, so there’s really nothing stopping you from a refreshing afternoon spent among the flowers! Enjoy!
