In need of a break from dreary winter in Columbus? Take in the sights and sounds of the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens during the return of the annual Orchids! exhibition on Saturday, Jan. 11. Each year, the Conservatory showcases the beautiful flower in a multitude of bright colors. If you're not able to make it there in January, Orchids! is on display until April 13. The Conservatory is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and tickets cost $12 for adults, $9 for students and seniors, and $6 for kids ages 6-17. Members and kids younger than 2 can see the exhibition for free. For more information about the Conservatory and its programs, visit –Heather Weekley, @heather_weekley
