|Going to look at plants is not the first thing you'd think of doing in a Chicago winter. Nonetheless, you should: the Palm House at Garfield Park Conservatory, on North Central Park Avenue, is kept to tropical temperatures and humidity... the perfect place to warm up. And if even that's not good enough, there's the Desert House too! Go and have a look from 9am to 6pm today.
