When one thinks of Chicago you think of skyscrapers, the bean, the Water tower, etc... These are the landmarks downtown. If you head 20 minutes north of downtown and get off at Tower Road you can enter the most beautiful, tranquil landscape the city has to offer, the Botanical Gardens. It is rolling hills of green foliage, flowers, and walkways.
There are lots of hidden passageways to explore.
Luscious flowers with sweet smells that defy words.
Even square trees.
Do you think swan when you think of Chicago?
Or how about a Herring?
Chicago- just a tiny part of what Illinois is really like.
