If you are in Pittsburg, this stop is well worth it. Takes about 2-3 hours to stroll through. Gorgeous orchids and plants as well as beautiful blown glass sculptures throughout. Staff was very friendly and café offered healthy, delicious food.

This is a great activity for anyone who loves flowers. On a rainy or cold day it's a great indoor activity. Meandering pathways lead you through the different rooms. There is also a cafe with exceptional food selections.
