The next stop in the Explore SF train is at the Conservatory of Flowers. This past Saturday was my first time there, despite it having been on an unofficial SF to-do list for years. I’d always seen photos of the iconic conservatory and surrounding garden, but hadn’t realized just exactly what was inside. Now, I’m not going to say that the plants will blow your mind, but there are some interesting species that may come close to doing just that.
Bring your camera – I’m kicking myself for being stuck again with my sub-par phone camera – and be prepared to leisurely stroll room by room looking all around admiring nature’s beauty. It’s the perfect sunny afternoon activity. Plus, I hear they open it for private parties. Someone throw one and invite me, won’t you?
Conservatory of Flowers, Golden Gate Park, 100 John F. Kennedy Drive, San Francisco
