This place is so much fun! My boyfriend and I visited in April just to escape the cold and we ended up LOVING what we found. Neither of us would call ourselves plant people (I mean, I've killed a cactus), but there's something so cool about finding a little oasis like this in the middle of Chicago. There are four different rooms to check out. My personal favorite is the main room, but I would still visit just for the other three rooms. Plus, if you're into photography, there are a ton of opportunities (just don't plan any kind of photoshoot without contacting the staff first)!

The conservatory had huge variety of plants and some looked very awesome. Personally my favorite part was the orchid room. Plus the coolest part is that you can go in for free, its amazing. The staff were very friendly and overall the entire place was well kept and looked very neat. It was very relaxing and i would definitely recommend it if you are staying in Chicago

It's free, and in the city. Take a tour around the place and then enjoy one of the great lakes! Also while at the park, when it's a hot day like when I was there, it's nice to feel that nice cool breeze hit you instead of being trapped by buildings. It's a good place to go and teach your child about animals and little critters.

Take a full day to stroll at Lincoln Park Zoo and Botanical Garden. Bring a picnic lunch. Enjoy life at a healthy pace in the most beautiful surroundings. Book a party at Cafe Bauer. Or, just STOP. LISTEN. LEARN. You might decide to pay for an I've cream

This is free! It is filled with the most beautiful plants. I couldn't stop oohing and ahing. Everywhere you look, gorgeous and healthy flowers and plants. If you're in Chicago, you must take advantage of this place! It's right next to the zoo, which is also free. Parking nearby is expensive, but for a day in the area, it's worth the price.
