..you must visit Phipps Conservatory. I just saw it on HGTV, and remembered my many visits. Plan to give it at least a full day, there's so much to see. I've seen many conservatories, and only Kew exceeds Phipps, in my opinion.

I had DH watch that with me today, and told him I've wanted to go there for some time now. When I took my daughter to UPMC we had to drive pretty close to Phipps. It's only an hour or so from where we live. You can bet it will be a fall trip for us this year, it looks like it's gorgeous beyond words!!

Thanks Donn for the idea! Phipps looks like a great place...I visited the botanical gardens and butterfly conservatory in Madison Wi a few seasons ago...there are so many wonderful places to see...

I must put this one on my "to do" list :))

I've been far North, far West and far South of where I live, but not to far East - maybe as far as Illinois, but hope to get all the way to the east coast someday. I will most definitely put the Phipps Conservatory on my agenda when I hit the east coast.
