While Away a Sunny Summer Day at Rawlings Conservatory
When we think of summery pastimes, most of the options are markedly active. You might take the kids to the park, or head to the pool. But sometimes you want a more relaxing way to spend your summer days, and Rawlings Conservatory offers just that.
The second oldest glass conservatory in the United States, this time-honored venue hosts a wide variety of plants in five separate greenhouse rooms, as well as a half-acre garden space. During your visit, you can travel the world through its flora, moving from a tropical forest to a desert. Even more so, you can travel through time with additions like the Palm House, offering a return to Victorian Baltimore.
Perhaps best of all, you can enjoy all of this for just a small donation. And, just as excitingly, you can come home with your own piece of greenery, bringing a piece of Rawlings Conservatory back to your apartment. The “best kept secret in Baltimore,” the Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens is the perfect place to unwind, whether it’s sitting on a bench near the koi pond or traveling through orchids, cacti, and more.
