Just a quick walk in from the Haight entrance of Golden Gate Park is the historic Conservatory of Flowers. Visiting this treasure feels like going back in time; the Conservatory’s brochure shows a picture of Victorian-era residents sitting outside the whitewashed and glass structure, showcasing a building that looks the same today at it did 120 years ago.

I love visiting the Conservatory of Flowers because it remains the same conservatory that my grandmother and great grandmother would visit and so has a special connection to these beautiful and influential women in my life.
Even without this connection I would be sure to love the charm and beauty of this timeless place. This lush garden, with its blooming orchids and an abundance of tropical plants, flourishes in the glass green houses.
