Chicago Botanic Gardens Trails Professional Review and Guide
"Nestled in the forests of Chicagoland’s upscale North Shore, the Chicago Botanic Gardens lie on nine fertile islands surrounded by quiet lakes. This tranquil stroll encircles the lakes—providing one-of-a-kind views of the islands—but also features easy access points to the twenty-three display gardens across the water via land bridges. When Chicago’s founders decided on a motto for the city, “Urbs in Horto” (City in a Garden), these 300 acres are surely what they had in mind."
