The best places to see fall foliage
Trees throughout Chicago will hit their fiery peak in mid-October, but they’re already starting to change colors. For the most impressive views, head to these locations for primo leaf-peeping this season.
Morton Arboretum
The 30-minute drive to Morton Arboretum is totally worth it. Forget your troubles amid peaceful nature as you stand surrounded by more than 4,200 types of trees.
Jackson Park
The park’s Wooded Island is a great place to start your adventure—make sure to stop by the Japanese-style Osaka Garden and seek out Yoko Ono's Skylanding sculpture.
Graceland Cemetery
Walk the quiet, lush grounds and take in the countless varieties of trees, including red oak, sycamore, black walnut, Norway spruce, Ohio buckeye and many, many more.
Humboldt Park
Hit the trails, stroll by the lagoons and take in a myriad of towering trees throughout the area. If you're pressed for time, cruise down Humboldt Boulevard for an eyeful of foliage.
