Garfield Park Conservatory - On the west side of Chicago there’s a lovely gem. A refuge of serenity in the undeniably hectic surrounding neighborhood. When I posted pictures from Conservatory on Instagram the most common comment was “This is my favorite place to come in the winter”. If you’re a Chicago native you know the Garfield Park area has a reputation for being rough, but if you’ve never been you definitely need to plan a trip. It’s free and amazing.
