Not as large as Garfield Park but still very nice. Warm on a cold day. Some very old plants, and it's Free.

This greenhouse is located next to the Lincoln Park Zoo and it is free admission. The flowers and plants are gorgeous. Check out their orchid room. The place is well-maintained and worth visiting.

Great all year round, but particularly great in the winter if you want to escape the cold. Tie this into a visit to the Lincoln Park Zoo and you have a fantastic day (or days) in Chicago.

Absolutely! There is an entrance to the zoo right by the Conservatory, near the rhinos! Also, if you wanted to start at the Caldwell Lily Pool, there is kind of a secret turnstile entrance to the zoo near the back of the... More
