Located in the northern suburbs of Chicago, the Chicago Botanic Garden is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. With over 2.5 million plants and flowers in 26 gardens, it’s a wonderful place to go for an afternoon stroll at any time of the year.
Tip: Although admission is free to the Garden, they do charge $20 to park your car. If you don’t mind a brief walk (less than a mile), park your car for free at the Braeside Metra station and walk down Lake Cook Road to the Garden entrance.
