Escape the concrete jungle and immerse yourself in a fresh world of wonder at The Chicago Botanic Garden, twenty miles north in Glencoe. The place is quite expansive, 385-acres await to arouse and ease your senses, from the aromatic Rose Garden to the peaceful Japanese Garden and Sensory Garden. Also, be on the lookout for wildlife: from the infamous moth hummingbird to photographers looking for a natural backdrop. Open 8 a.m. till sunset, later during the summer, when the sun goes down and the gardens light up.
Metra’s Union Pacific North line will take you straight there from the loop, by way of a short $2 trolly ride from the Glencoe stop to the gardens.
