Chicago Botanic Garden-Wonderland Express

These pictures are from our visit to the Chicago Botanic Garden for their annual holiday Wonderland Express. It consists of many exhibits featuring miniature replicas of Chicago’s most recognizable buildings with trains running thru all exhibits: high & low. What I love to see is the many plants that are used in all the exhibits and of course the holiday displays. At night the Christmas lights go on and it’s a beautiful view. This is another place that you can visit in Chicago during the Holiday Season. For more info visit: http://www.chicagobotanic.org/wonderland

Zoo Lights-Lincoln Park Zoo

Another place we love to visit for Holiday fun is the Zoo Lights display at Lincoln Park Zoo. And the great thing about this celebration is that it’s free. It runs from December 5th to January 4th. The lights are turned on from 5-9 pm and that’s when all the fun begins. The lights dance in sync to Holiday music, and they have so many Christmas animal displays. We received 3d glasses so anywhere there is light you see little elves. They also have Ice-skating, which is $5 admission plus an extra $5 for skate rental.For more information visit:http://www.lpzoo.org/events/calendar/zoolights

Morton Arboretum Illumination

The next place we decided to visit was the Morton Arboretum for their Illumination display. It includes trees covered in LED lights that respond to touch and dance to music. This is the second year for this display; last year when I heard about it, it was sold out. So I made sure to buy my tickets early. I loved the Hug A Tree display; trees change color the moment they are hugged. They also have the Crystal Promenade, where trees are adorned with crystal chandeliers that dim with the music. And the best display is the Symphony woods where the lights dance to music by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. It’s a great place to visit if you love Holiday Light Displays. They also have numerous fire pits so if you’re cold you can warm up for a moment & continue with the path. For more info on the Morton Arboretum visit http://www.mortonarb.org/events/illumination-tree-lights-morton-arboretum

Museum of Science & Industry

I love how there is so much to do here in Chicago during the Holiday season. So we took a trip to the Museum of Science & Industry for their annual Christmas Around the World and Holiday of Lights. It features Christmas tree displays with ornaments from around the world. The main tree is decorated in the theme of this year 2014, which is Disney. While we where there we also visited the temporary exhibit-Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives. I love that they have a drawing class there, where they showed us how to draw Mickey, even though mine ended up looking like he’s mad. It runs until January 4th 2015.
