Japanese Garden to Visit

Tony_C(z5Michigan)March 8, 2005

I'm in Grand Rapids, Michigan and eager to accelerate spring. During the next couple of weekends I have a chance to take a weekend break. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I'm game for a 300-400 mile trip south to find somewhere to visit. Tony

Hi Tony,
You can visit my garden (I am only joking.)

Come to St. Louis for the largest stroll garden in the western hemisphere at the Missouri Botanical Garden. It may be more than 400 miles but we have killer Italian food also.

Hi Tony, you might try Anderson's Gardens in Rockford Il. and the Chicago Botanical Gardens has a wonderful Japanese Garden. Check to be sure the Anderson's Gardens is open for visitors. Hope the weather improves, it's kind of cold.

Cheers Jando

So, Jeepster....where would you recommend to go for that Italian food after one visits the garden?

Luckily our garden is about three blocks away from the main Italian district "The Hill". You can get some original "Toasted Ravioli" at the place that created it - yuummmmmmm.
