We were visiting the domes since 1980, every winter, only missing one year. As you may know, they closed one (or two?) of the domes for awhile, but now have a temporary fix for the structural issues.

   I really hope they can find the money to replace them - but it's really costly.

I am glad that you enjoyed my piece. Since you brought up Milwaukee gardens, here is my blog about visiting The Domes on a winter's weekend.

We make it a point to visit conservatories over the winter. We have a couple nice ones in Chicago, and in Milwaukee. There is nothing nicer, in the winter, to walk out of 10-degree weather into a glass-enclosed structure surrounded by plants! I wish there were more of these around the country. (no, this is not my picture)

Sometimes you want to get away from the crowds. Taking a winter's day walk through the New York Botanical Gardens is a great way to get some alone time - https://goo.gl/jE8095
