Owner description: Only 25 miles west of Chicago, there's something for everyone in all four seasons at The Morton Arboretum. Whether you seek a quiet hike in the woods or an active family day out, The Morton Arboretum offers a wide variety of fun activities, events, tours, and classes for all ages and interests. Here you'll find an oasis of 16 miles of hiking trails and nine miles of paved roads, perfect for hiking, running, biking or just exploring. From a guided tour on an open-air tram to the award-winning Children's Garden and Maze Garden, to seasonal exhibits and lunch in The Ginkgo Restaurant overlooking Meadow Lake, the Arboretum is a unique place to explore, discover, escape, and connect with trees and nature.

What a tribute to the founders to keep this sanctuary alive and open for the public to enjoy! So much to see! A fabulous day of walking in nature with those I love!

Every event I have hosted at the Morton arboretum has been a great success and a pleasure. The sales and service department are top notch. I highly recommend the Morton Arboretum.

I sure like using this Christmas gift membership! Biking the hills especially on the East Loop is fantastic. You see trees from around the world in about 1 hour - it is amazing!

Top ten places in Illinois to see nature: yes - for the entire family

Inspired: Joy Morton - thank you

Pro: cafeteria food, entire staff, visitors, David Rogers' Big Bugs Exhibition, amazing gift shop, bike rentals, a beautiful place for a wedding!

Con: nothing at all

Return: I look forward to seeing the fall colors here!

This is a great attraction outside of downtown Chicago. It is a wonderful area for kids and the family to spend the day. You can pack a lunch or buy something from their well stocked cafe.

The Morton Arboretum is a great experience no matter what your age! but there is so much there for kids to enjoy. The giant bug sculptures, The Tree Houses Exhibit, and the Children's Garden are all excellent ways to introduce younger folks to the wonders of nature. Check their website for reduced admission days.
