Cities and green spaces don’t always go together.
Thankfully, Chicago is the exception to that rule. No matter which neighborhood you reside in, chances are there’s a park nearby. Andrew and I are fortunate to live near one of the biggest ones: Lincoln Park. Whether it’s a zoo you fancy, a beachside running trail, or dinner and drinks along the lake, this spot really does have everything. You can’t help but leave with a little “greenspiration”, especially now that spring is officially underway!
Igniting that passion are the dozens – if not hundreds – of plant and flower shops sprinkled throughout town. Consider this your checklist for when next winter rolls around and you need a pick-me-up, especially in the middle of a polar vortex. I’m curious, what are some of your favorite places?
