Each February, hundreds of orchids invade Cleveland Botanical Garden, in Cleveland's University Circle cultural district. The month-long show features all shapes, sizes, and colors of these exotic plants--the perfect balm for a blustery winter's day. This year, the exhibit begins on February 1 and lasts through March 9.
Orchid Mania is free with admission to Cleveland Botanical Garden, which is $11 for adults and $6 for children 3-12. Children under 3 are admitted free.
Cleveland Botanical Garden is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm, on Sundays from noon to 5pm.
