While spending the weekend in Chicago, my friend and I decided to go to the Garfield Park Conservatory since it was right down the street from our Airbnb.

Walking into the conservatory was such a breath of fresh air (literally). The air was warm and balmy, a stark contrast to the frigid air of the Chicago winter outside. It was the perfect activity for a cold winter day.

The cost is free and they only ask for donations. Check out the website for the conservatory here.
