If you’re escaping from the city, lose yourself at this beautiful forest preserve and Japanese garden. My family and I spent about an hour walking around the paths here on an unusually nice day. The Japanese garden was recently updated and it’s pretty breathtaking. I’m not looking for “enlightenment” but if I were I’d go here. There’s also a home here designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. I’d have to say my favorite part was the large windmill – it looks like it’s straight out of a painting.
