Whale Watching in Oak Park

Select Local Merchants

Each season, more than 222,000 plants change color at The Morton Arboretum—an internationally recognized outdoor tree museum located 25 miles west of Chicago in Lisle, Ill. However, key to this arboretum's success is allowing its 4,300 taxa from around the world to bloom in environments conducive to their natural growth. With plants originating from 40 countries in the northern hemisphere, a trip through 1,700 acres is like a trip across America, China, and Europe. Throughout the year, scores of tree-focused events, activities, and services for adults, children, and professionals keep nature enthusiasts engaged and educated. In addition to 16 miles of walking trails and nine miles of roads, guests can also seek new info at the Visitor's Center, relax for a bite to eat at the Ginkgo Restaurant and Café, take the little ones to the four-acre Children’s Garden, get lost in the one-acre maze, or walk around the paved trail at Meadow Lake.
