Botanic Gardens Winter Wonderland Express

Take a magical adventure to a winter wonderland of twinkling lights and holiday beauty at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Miniature trains winds over bridges, under trestles, past waterfalls, and through more than 80 mini-replicas of Chicago's favorite landmarks. This unique blend of artistic wizardry, fanciful design, magnificent horticulture, and of course, the whizzing, whistling miniature trains. Paul Busse, designer of the Model Railroad Garden, created this amazing exhibition exclusively for the Garden's holiday celebration. What a fantasic display of Chicago history, buildings and attractions. It only runs from Thanksgiving to New Years and well worth the time to go see this. Train enthusiasts will love it! There is a train in every display and several running overhead on thissel branch bridges. Its amazing to see!

A picture is worth a 1000 words! It's no wonder you all had a great time. It looks beautiful there. Cute picture of the kids with the ornaments. I'm glad you enjoyed your day and thank you for sharing it.
