The Morris Arboretum
The weather is perfect and it’s sunny outside, so a trip to the beautiful Morris Arboretum is a must.
It’s a fantastic place to visit, whether you’re taking your family out or going on a romantic date, there’s something for everyone. The landscapes are absolutely gorgeous and the amount of time put into maintaining the gardens is truly hard to believe. Such attention to detail!

I heavily recommend making a full day out of it if you plan on seeing everything at the Arboretum. With a few hours to look around at a casual pace, I still only managed to see half of what the Arboretum had to offer.
I took one of the main paths around and stopped by some of the larger attractions; the Rose Gardens, the Out on a Limb exhibit and the Swan pond to name a few.

On the way out, I spoke to some of the staff. It’s only $75 for a yearly pass to the Arboretum, and that includes 2 free passes so you can take some friends! I’ll certainly go back so I can see the rest of the gardens. Maybe I’ll see you there.
