Do you recognize this sight?  I bet you've been to this place in Rockford before. Hopefully you will plan on going again sometime in the next month, because it has just been named the most beautiful spot in Illinois by How cool is that?!?

You guessed it, it's Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens!

The Nicholas Conservatory and Gardens is one of my favorite places to visit in Rockford, especially during the holiday season. Not only is their All Aglow celebration breathtaking to see, but they have such fun holiday events to take the family to like Breakfast with Santa and the All Aglow Express.



When I saw this article about the "underrated spot in Illinois that jmay just be the most beautiful" on, I admittedly felt like a proud mama bear. It's not like I built the place, but I love seeing other people appreciate Rockford gems as much as I do. Nicholas Conservatory is truly at it's absolute best during the holiday season, so make plans to check it out sometime now through January 8, 2017.
