Best of Chicago
Chicago is a remarkable city, especially for outdoor activities. The city boasts nearly 600 outdoor venues including parks, gardens, and lakes. Those venues are one of the reasons that apartments in Chicago are in demand.
So, what happens when Chicago’s famous winter kicks up snow, sleet, hail, and drops the temperature into the minus digits? During the coldest months of the year, the people of Chicago head indoors for all of their outdoor adventures. As such, Chicago offers a vast array of indoor opportunities including some amazing indoor gardens. Here, we visit two of those gardens to highlight some of the best indoor gardens in Chicago.
THE CRYSTAL GARDENS
The Crystal Gardens is open year-round and is one of the many attractions at Navy Pier. This is an excellent spot to meander along brick-lined walkways that wind through plants, fountains, and trees. It is also an excellent spot for conversations, picnics, and for people watching. With planning, the Crystal Gardens makes a perfect place for business gatherings, parties, and even weddings. The gardens sit on a full acre of land. As a venue, the place holds upwards of 1,500 people per event. Glass walls protect from the brutal Chicago winter and provide an outstanding view of Navy Pier throughout the year.
GARFIELD PARK CONSERVATORY
Hidden in the name is one of Chicago’s most interactive gardens — Garfield Park Conservatory. This is an excellent place for anyone who wants to learn about gardening, plant care, or specialty plants such as bonsai. With more than a century of care, these west side gardens are a showstopper throughout the year. Best of all, there is no fee to get in, so it is perfect for everyone.
