You don’t have to let damp spring days rain on your parade. Here are some ways to enjoy the season, despite the weather.

Stop and smell the roses

You’ll forget about the spring storms quickly at Franklin Park Conservatory & Botanical Gardens. Surround yourself with hundreds of butterflies for Blooms & Butterflies or admire 125,000+ tulips, narcissus, and pansies throughout the Conservatory with Columbus Blooms. Plus, don’t forget about spring arts, gardening, and cooking classes.
