If you are into a botanical experience in Pittsburgh, in the downtown (say darntarn) area-head to Phipps Conservatory. It's great. Easy to walk around and so much to ooh and ahh about.

I love Phipps! I love that they redecorate for every season and bring in seasonal flowers. My favorite time to go is around Christmas when they have the lights out in the courtyard.
