It was peaceful.

Because of the the of year we visited (early November), we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves which was very nice. One of the volunteers spent some time with us and provided much interesting information that we not have known otherwise.

We had a tasty, reasonably priced lunch provided by Tony's of Winnebago. They are apparently licensed by the Park District to offer light meals. We agreed to return in in springtime because the outdoor displays and grounds appeared to be very nice. It is nothing like a Chicago area conservatory in terms of size but we enjoyed it very much.

The warmth! We went on a super cold day and it was nice and tropical in there. The people were very nice and informative too!

It was really cool to see all the things that we can't grow here. Gives insight to how beautiful other countries can be too. P.S. I want a banana tree!!
