Phipps Conservatory – Pittsburgh, PA

This is an absolutely serene, uplifting place to visit during the winter months.  It is so relaxing to wander through the various displays. You can spend an entire day here or just a couple of hours.  If you need to get away but can’t afford a vacation, this is a wonderful place to escape to if you need to re-balance.  The address is 1 Schenley Park, Pittsburgh, PA  15213.

Sparkling Dale Chihuly glass sculptures can be found throughout the Victorian glass and steel structure.  And don’t miss the award-winning cafe located just inside the front doors to the right.  On your way out you can buy something unique at the garden-themed gift shop.  Below are some pictures that I have taken throughout the years.
