AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens were built as a gift to the city of Pittsburgh. Philanthropist Henry Phipps' elaborate construction is an architectural masterpiece of the late 19th century. The Conservatory, which opened in 1893, is an expansive Victorian-style greenhouse that serves as an oasis for orchids, palms and other assorted flora. You'll find events like flower shows, tomato festivals, wine tastings and gargoyle celebrations (!) at Phipps. Don't imagine that "historic" means "difficult"; the complex is temperature controlled and wheelchair accessible, and the front walkway is equipped with self-heating sidewalks for safe winter visits.
