Lincoln Park Conservatory is one of the most beautiful hidden gems in the city. From Venus Fly Traps to the most tropical, beautiful, foreign plans you've ever seen, this is a not-to-be-missed.

Possibly my #1 favorite spot in all of Chicago. It's warm, green, filled with living things and is totally free.

A Gardenscape by Lake Michigan – There are secret gardenscapes near Stockton Drive and Fullerton Avenue, by Lake Michigan at the Lincoln Park Conservatory. You can walk in and wander from a tropical rainforest paradise into the Palm House, then visit the Orchid House and meander to the Flower Showroom. Be ready to look for the goldfish and koi ponds. You will also find exotic specimens and century-old trees at the Lincoln Park Conservatory, a refuge from the urban jungle and a sub-tropical oasis.

Get your dose of nature and forget about everything – Just thinking of this place relaxes me. It is beautiful and warm. There's a palm room, a fern room, and orchid room, and a special exhibit room. Parking is challenging as it's right next to the zoo but if you go during the day when kids are in school it's possible, perhaps up by the Notebaert Nature Museum. There are paid lots and also CTA buses. While you are in the area you can check out the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum which has a butterfly haven, North Pond nature concervancy, and also the Alfred Caldwell Lilly Pool as long as it's not winter. Enjoy....

It's spring--and blissfully quiet--365 days a year in this old-world, glass-enclosed biosphere. – The Scene
In this contemplative and quiet spot, your mind and feet are free to meander down curving paths past hundreds of towering plant species, from Indonesian banana trees to Mexican ficus, and reflective pools fed by trickling fountains.

The Details
Greenery covers practically every inch of the moist three-acre house, including the central palm room (the largest of the rooms) and several sections in back: the fernery, the show house and the orchid room. Most plants in the fernery are more than 100 years old, while the show house is dedicated to seasonal blooms. Across the street are Grandma's gardens, along Stockton Avenue between Webster Avenue and Fullerton.

History
The conservatory was built in 1893 and still has some of its original plants. At eye level, look for large valves attached to chains that reach to gears in the roof. These are still the primary method of opening ceiling vents.
