    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.  more »

    It is a beautiful botanical garden, free estrada. To go out of the Zoo. It has plants around the world, simulating the natural habitat of each one. It is not very large, in 20 or 30 minutes runs it everything. Recommended

    Really great place to go to! No charge to get in either. Lots of different plants from around the world. Parking as usual can be a bit tough, but I managed to find one on two separate occasions. Great for families and individuals.

    A lush tropical jungle retreat in the heart of Lincoln Park next to the zoo. Friendly staff are approachable and have answers for just about any question. A wonderful and beautiful nature experience.

    It's a beautiful conservatory. Walking in you are hit by the smell and the humidity, both of which are refreshing. I don't know anything about plants but it is nice just to walk. One room has little dinosaurs which is cute.

    Flower show was going on - all the arrangements were very well done and pretty. Bashed my head against a sausage plant near the entrance - the lady at the entrance checked on me three times to make sure I was okay. (Warning to visitors: don't hit your head on one of the things hanging down from the sausage plants - they don't look heavy but it was like hitting a wall.) Very relaxing and a pleasant experience

    What a gem. So nice to have a free attraction in Chicago. It was a bit tired though. The conservatory was lovely on a cold winter's day.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area.
