Be smart going here, get out before dark, even driving. Nice place to visit, but not necessary. Please be street wise, don't stare.

Free! Romantic, but even the kids enjoyed it. It also often has art exhibits within. Excellent photo opportunities

One of the most beautiful conservatories you will ever visit, set right in Lincoln Park and it is free! Or it was the day we were there. Original building itself is a work of art. Take your time and just enjoy. I love this place.

This venue is a bit out of the way, but easy to get to and well worth the trip. Donations are suggested, but there is no mandatory charge. The palm selection is extensive, as are the cacti and succulents.

Garfield Park Conservatory is a jewel, and often missed because it is off the beaten path. About 20 minutes west of the loop via the Green Line, the Conservatory offers a number of indoor gardens, as well as seasonal outdoor gardens and children's classes. It...More
