2016-7-31-Conservatory-Of-Flowers-GoldenGatePark

Golden Gate Park in San Francisco has plenty of things to see and do.  From free things like spotting the bison, hiking past waterfalls, and visiting the windmill and the tulip garden, to fairly expensive paid experiences like visiting the California Academy of Science Museum, there is something for every budget.

If you enjoy plants, the Conservatory of Flowers is a must see.  This quaint Victorian white-washed building opened in 1879.  There are both permanent plantings and changing exhibits, and gala events held in this magical space.  Visit their website to find out more about what’s going on at the Conservatory.
