Customers of Chicago Exotics Luxury Car Rentals will enjoy more than 9 miles of paved roadways within the Arboretum, as well as 14 miles of hiking trails, an open-air tram ride and special one-hour information tours. It's never been easier to escape the monotony of the city, so what are you still waiting for? Plan to visit the beautiful Morton Arboretum during your upcoming visit to Chicago.
Appreciate the trees - you need them to breathe!
Mr. Joy Morton established the Morton Arboretum on December 14th of 1922. Joy's father, Julius Sterling Morton, an avid botanist and wilderness lover, is best known as the founder of Arbor Day. Aside from providing visitors with access to some of the finest planets in the nation, the Morton Arboretum also features one of the most prominent botanical research facilities inside the Sterling Morton Library. Designed by noted Chicago architect, Harry Weese, the Sterling Morton Library contains thousands of resources, including more than 25,000 volumes of books and magazines. Customers of Chicago Exotics Luxury Car Rentals will also find tens of thousands of non-print items inside the Library, including letters, photographs, drawings and prints. The collection focuses primarily on plant sciences, most specifically on trees and shrubs. Works also abound on the history of plant exploration, as well as biographies on botanists, horticulturalists and botanical artists.
Get lost in nature: The Morton Arboretum Maze Garden
Of the dozens of plants and attractions inside the Morton Arboretum, there's only one that can keep you entertained for hours - the Maze Garden. This exciting labyrinth includes more than 2,400 yew trees, seven hidden plant rooms and a half-mile of twisting trail ways. Customers of Chicago Exotics Luxury Car Rentals are sure to have fun finding their way through this one-acre living puzzle, but beware! Dead ends abound in this sprawling landscape, providing visitors with more than half a dozen secret rooms and displays. Not sure you have what it takes to tackle this winding monster of a maze? Don't worry; you can watch your Chicago Exotics Luxury Car Rentals friends try to navigate the puzzle from the comfort of a towering platform viewing area. Built around a stunning, 60-foot tall Sycamore tree, this viewing platform provides onlookers with a birds-eye view of the maze and its confused occupants.
