Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum combines innovative technology with the wooded landscapes of the Arboretum. The interactive light experience engages senses through vivid projections, color displays, and trees that respond to touch and sound. Visitors walk along a mile-long, paved walking trail that winds around the Arboretum's Meadow Lake and along its Conifer Walk, interacting with surrounding trees along the way. Using LED lighting technology, visitors can hug or sing to a tree to watch it change color, see their own face projected on a grove of trees.
This Groupon is valid for dates from December 1–December 18.
The Morton Arboretum
With plants originating from 40 countries in the northern hemisphere, a trip through the 1,700 acres of The Morton Arboretum is like a trip across America, China, and Europe. More than 222,000 plants are protected and showcased on the grounds—an internationally renowned outdoor tree museum located 25 miles west of Chicago in Lisle, Illinois. Throughout the year, scores of nature-focused events, activities, and educational offerings 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 rent bicycles, skis, and snowshoes or grab a bite to eat at the Ginkgo Restaurant and Café. Additionally, guests can also bring children to the award-winning four-acre Children’s Garden, get lost in the one-acre hedge maze, or hike 16 miles of trails through woods and around lakes.
