I don't like cold weather. It's about 35 degrees here in Chicago and that's about as low as I want it to go. Yesterday, I found myself with an hour or so of spare time, so, at the suggestion of fellow Yelpers, I hopped on the El and went to the Garfield Park Conservatory. I was not disappointed.
This is the fern room. Who knew ferns could be so spectacular?
There's also a koi pond decorated with Chihuly blown-glass lily pads.
All in all, it was a wonderful way to escape a chilly, gray day. Oh, and did I mention, it's free?
