HotelRED managers recently had the opportunity to get out of the office and experience one of Destination Madison‘s Essential Madison Experiences. Essential Madison Experiences are curated, hands-on adventures designed to entice and guide visitors and locals alike. Madison is an interesting, charming city and these experiences encapsulate many elements of this unique destination.
Garden to Glass: Totally Tropical is an immersive, informative tour of Olbrich Garden’s Bolz Conservatory. This year-round tropical paradise is a welcome escape from Wisconsin’s cold and bitter winters with its green foliage inside of a striking glass pyramid. More than 650 species of tropical plants call the Conservatory home, along with a rushing waterfall, free-flying birds, and colorful koi.
In this experience, guests are encouraged to admire, touch, taste, and smell various elements of the indoor garden – a true sensory experience. In addition, guests were educated on the history of Olbrich Gardens, rainforest conservation, and rare endangered species. At the end of the tour, a signature cocktail created with ingredients from rainforest plants was served.
We recommend you add an Essential Madison Experiences to your itinerary for an unforgettable experience.
