Nicholas Conservatory's tropical garden a local hot spot during the winter.
Rockford- Nicholas Conservatory has seen a boost in visitors due to to cold weather. For some Stateliners, they say being there reminds them of summer. The weather on Saturday was warmer then it has been this past week. So there were people outside walking the path. The Lagoon was also closed due to warm weather, so Stateliners were not able to ice skate Saturday.
