When you go to The Morton Arboretum, there are things to do all the time, and in all Seasons. The Arboretum is an outdoor tree museum. With Spring finally arriving, there will be bird walks to take, the Daffodil Glade will be blooming very soon---thousands and thousands of daffodils to see! Check the website at mortonarb.org for the growing calendar,... More

Morton Arboretum certainly is the Crown Jewel of Lisle--and has been for decades. It has evolved into a world-class collection of trees, plants and nature. The children's garden is worth the trip alone--even for adults. Wonderful walking trails and for biking. Summers offer special events that make it worth being a member. (The concerts held last year were BETTER and... More

if you are looking for something to do outdoors, this is the place! Kid friendly, tons of plants and flowers, and miles of greenery. If you have a chance to go at Christmas, they have an event called Illumination, and all the trees are decorated with tons of lights, and it is really something to see!

We are members of the Morton Arboretum and spend lots of time here. You can hike the many different trails, drive, bike and run on the roads. It's beautiful in any season. In the winter you can snowshoe, cross country ski and I like to walk on the path around the lake near the visitor's center. There are many terrific... More

Beautiful place to go on a hike on their numerous hiking trails. We went in the fall as the leaves were changing and it was gorgeous. I can imagine it would be great for kids/families as well.

Acres and acres of hiking paths through varies groves of different species or walk around the small lake. There is a great area for children to learn about nature. For those who don't walk to walk, take a ride on the Safari Express tram that gives you a guided tour through the entire Arboretum. Fabulous gift shop for unique nature... More

Years ago we received a family membership and didn't think we would use it much. Wow, were we wrong. We have bought the family membership since then for years and go there often throughout the year. The children's garden has lots of activities and worth going to every visit. In the fall we do their festivals and such and check... More

The Morton Arboretum is a special place to visit every season even in the winter. We were there the last two weekends for the Chocolate Festival & the Huskie Sled Dog Event. It was great watching the sled dog teams run through beautiful snow covered arboretum trail & visit with the dog owners. We enjoy using the trails for cross... More
