I learned about Illumination during a visit to the Arboretum this fall and thought it would be a fun way to kick off the holiday season. As I was walking through the woods at night, trees decorated in lights and Christmas music playing, "Winter Wonderland"...More

The Morton Arboretum is open all year long and never ceases to amaze. The trees change with the seasons and the property is always just beautiful for walks, bike rides, or just a lunch on the terrace. BEAUTIFUL, educational, pristine, and peaceful.
