Graceland Gets Grand, Gorgeous Gates

With the weather bouncing between spring, summer, and storms (often in the same day), it's a great time to remember how lucky we are to have a certified arboretum right in the neighborhood that welcomes guests, walkers, and strollers -- for free! 

After months of construction, the main entrance of Graceland Cemetery and Arboretum (Irving Park and Clark) has been completed and it's stunning. You can enter there, or at the Greenwood gate (on Clark between Cullom and Hutchinson). 

Graceland describes itself as "An Oasis of Art, Architecture, and Landscape Design since 1860" and we couldn't agree more.

It's open seven days a week, and winter hours are currently in effect (the Greenwood gate is open from 8am-3:30pm, and the main entrance is open from 8am-4pm).

Take advantage of the (momentarily) sunny weather and soak up some natural Vitamin D.
