“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Phipps is one of the gems of this city. I am not from Pittsburgh originally, but Phipps made the transition a bit easier :) Beautiful gardens and they change every season.

“Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

I have visited Phipps on multiple occasions and can't get enough of the place. It is incredibly beautiful in every season. If you get the chance go to the holiday show before it changes this weekend do!

Vacation in the winter. This is a wonderful break from the cold weather in Pittsburgh. Makes you feel like you are on vacation.

“Beautiful...Just Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

From walking onto the grounds to walking inside the Conservatory, this is a must visit. Parking is limited. Food is good, though over-priced.

“Victorian charm, updated appeal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Phipps is a botanical conservatory in a historic building in a quiet, park-like setting. Its plants and featured rooms are beautiful and I find the environmentally-friendly and energy-conserving updates to the structure inspiring.
