Morris Arboretum, owned by Penn, is 92 acres of lush gardens about 30 minutes north of the University. After 3 years of telling myself I should go see it, I finally made the trek out there on July 4.
I was blown away by the beauty and peacefulness of the place. There were art displays throughout, along with rose gardens, a swan pond, a log cabin, and a toy train exhibit. Check out their website for upcoming classes, lectures and events. Penn Card Holders get in for free, so no excuses!
