I live in a city surrounded by cities. I'm a country girl at heart and love pretty scenery. However, to get that I have to go to a specific place. We have an aroboretum near my house that I love. You have to pay to go in but a year pass is $40.00. It's one of the best $40.00 I've ever spent.
I love going, especially during the spring because everything is in bloom.
Recently I discovered that Better Homes and Gardens has a local Garden and Arboretum locator. You can search for each state and even some parts of Canada. I found out that I have SEVEN gardens/arboretums within reasonable driving distance from me. 7! So, if I ever get bored with the arboretum I do go to I have plenty of options!
