When you think of spring your thoughts turn to flowers. Which you’ll find everywhere as botanic gardens burst with color around Illinois. But this time of year also marks the return of warmer temps, baseball and a welcomed chance to get away for spring break.
Immerse yourself in the beauty of spring at botanic gardens filled with Mother Nature’s personal touches. Here, you’ll discover everything from fields of wild flowers and sculpted gardens to trees from around the world exploding with blossoms.
Who says you need a boarding pass to enjoy spring break? Or even a plan, for that matter? Just head to an indoor water park where you can lounge poolside, splash down water slides, grab a bite to eat, and head back to your room—without ever leaving the resort.
In a perfect world, opening day—with its electric atmosphere, pageantry and presidential first pitches—would be a national holiday. But until that time comes, baseball’s biggest day will simply mark the unofficial start to spring. And if you have to miss work to enjoy it? So be it.
