It's no accident that Mother's Day arrives in the spring, when flowers are in bloom and everything smells and looks so sweet. Spend your special Sunday walking the trails and paths of these four nature centers.
Head to the Chicago Botanic Gardens for the annual American Rhododendron Society Show and Sale, taking place over Mother's Day eeekend. The Botanic Gardens also has a brunch on Mother's Day, but tickets need to be purchased at least a month in advance. You can still walk around and see the tulips in bloom and all the best that spring in Chicago has to offer.
