I'm quickly becoming a fan of arboretums and botanical gardens in general. Morris Arboretum is a great escape from the city chaos of Philadelphia. While the rose garden and the model trains are the main highlights of the garden, I particularly loved all of the little hidden side paths and hidden spots. I also had the pleasure of meeting the unofficial tour guide, Harry the little gray cat. Highly recommended for a peaceful escape.

So many sculptures to see was a real treat in addition to all the flowers and trees. Out of the way but worth the trip! About 30 min NW of Philly. Bring your tennis shoes because there is a lot of walking to see it all.

The Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania is an interdisciplinary center that integrates art, science and the humanities. Thousands of rare and lovely woody plants, including some of Philadelphia's oldest, rarest, and largest trees, are set in a romantic, 92-acre, Victorian landscape garden of winding paths, streams, flowers and special garden areas.

Admission was $10 in 2007.
