One of my favorite things about Cleveland is the amount of "hidden gems" that we have throughout the city. I had heard plenty of positive reviews on the beauty of the Rockefeller Park Greenhouse, yet I had never been there. The greenhouse is open all year long, 7-days a week, FREE, and is less than five minutes away from me.
During one of the coldest weeks that I can ever remember living on this earth, Jillian twisted my arm by asking me to join her at the greenhouse. Why did it take me so long to check this out?
The greenhouse is small enough to not feel overwhelming, yet large enough to easily kill a couple of hours. Most of the structure is original, and the old, steel beams contrast unbelievably well with the greenery. The foot traffic throughout is typically pretty quiet, and the employees and other guests are very eager to help spread their knowledge. It's absolutely worth a visit.
