Winter Getaway

Now that winter has turned into WINTER in Northeast Ohio, we’re kind of over it. Forecasts say tomorrow’s high temperature in Cleveland will be 1 degree below zero. That’s not a typo, unfortunately.

You can escape the weather for a while without getting on a plane or even driving very far. The Rockefeller Park Greenhouse offers a reprieve from the current not-so-great outdoors. There are colorful plants and flowers, warmth and light, things that are in short supply this time of year.

Besides those amenities, the greenhouse offers free admission and free parking. It's at 750 East 88th St., off I-90’s MLK Drive exit, and its phone number is 216-664-3103.

You might just stay in tomorrow if you can manage it. But you can visit the greenhouse another time. It’s open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

While you're in the area, there's another place nearby where you can view some flora. Orchid Mania is at the Cleveland Botanical Garden in University Circle through March 10. It's not free, however, unless you're a CBG member or a child age 2 or younger.
