One of the things I love about living in San Francisco is how much there is to see and explore in the 7 x 7 mile city. Last week, I took my mom on a surprise day trip to the SF Conservatory of Flowers located in gorgeous Golden Gate Park. Not only are the exterior grounds scenic, inside is just as beautiful and peaceful. There are a total of 5 rooms located within the conservatory all hosting different plants from around the world. Each room is temperature and climate controlled based on the region of where the plants are from. The featured exhibition right now is called “The Wild Bunch: Succulents, Cacti & Fat Plants,” which happen to be one of my favorite groups of plants at the moment.
This is a great place to come and escape the busy city life during the week. The entrance fee is $8 for adults and $6 fee if you’re in SF resident. To plan your trip, check out their site here.
