Rawlings Conservatory and Druid Hill
The Rawlings Conservatory is a glorious place where you can explore the many plant ecosystems from around the world. Rawling's architecture is magnificent and is one of the few Victorian conservatories left in the world today. It is worth the trip simply to view this incredible glass structure, but you are sure to be mesmerize by the perfectly manicured gardens and spectacular garden species that await you inside.
A unique point of interest is the Bronze clad sundial from the 1890's which points to all four time zones in the world. You may pass this wondrous place on your way to Maryland Zoo and it is often overlooked as a destination, but this hidden gem really begs to be explored.
