Nicholas Conservatory

Rockford, Illinois

Rockford boasts a good number of horticultural treasures. First stop, the Nicholas Conservatory! Featuring 11,000 square feet of tropical plants, it’s a delightful getaway. $8 for non-residents. Oh, how I wish we had someplace like this in our town so we could volunteer in winter months and soak in the humidity and scent of soil. It’s right next to rose gardens and a public art trail– and just down the road from the incredible Anderson Japanese Gardens!
