There is something about botanical gardens and flowers that can cheer almost anyone up. Prancing around gardens just makes you feel like you are in a fairytale and out of reality. This huge greenhouse in North Carolina is free to explore and will have you a sense of tranquility when you walk through.

Orchid Trail Greenhouse in Morrisville, North Carolina has more than 20,000-square-feet to wander through. You can learn all about the planting process and how to keep up with these specific plants. 

There are over 2,000 orchids in this greenhouse that bloom all throughout the year. It's free to walk through, but you'll probably take home a few orchids.

Orchid Trail has one of the largest private collections of orchids in all of North Carolina. The greenhouses alone can hold up to 21,000-square-feet of orchids, basically a whole lot of flowers. 

If you don't have a green thumb (which you are lucky if you do), the gardeners here will help you pick out the best orchid, a pot and potting supplies. Prices vary depending on each ranging anywhere from $25 to over $100 to very rare plants. 

You're more than welcome to explore the inside of the greenhouses if you aren't even looking for a plant, or are just trying to get an idea of what you want. 

These plants make for perfect gifts as well which is great because Orchid Trail ships to every state except Arizona, Alaska and Hawaii.
