In the Chicago Area one of my most favorite places to go is The Chicago Botanical Gardens. They have over 365 acres and 26 special gardens along with their green houses, gift shops, hiking and bicycling trails and their Tram Tours. This place I’ve always called “God’s Little Place on Earth” I use to bicycle through here in my more “fit days” and during the summer and fall. However, they have a number of winter events and its a memorable place to visit even in the winter. Its a little north of the city but its worth the drive! We send people there all the time and they keep coming back raving about it. So when you check in here at the Chicago Lake Shore Hotel ask us about whats a great place to visit and we won’t let you down!
