Comments about Smart Destinations Conservatory of Flowers:

Golden Gate Park is a beautiful place and the gazebo structure of the Flower Conservatory fits in wonderfully Perfect for taking romantic pictures. The inside is just fascinating. The flowers and plants are a sight to behold. They even have a special exhibit running about secretly poisonous plants. I loved being inside this small paradise and didn't want to leave. I didn't expect that this would be one of my favorite spots.
