Ready to Join?

Every season in Chicago has its own magic! Let's enjoy the magic of the Fall, specially, the colorful magic of nature.

We will visit the Chicago Botanic Garden for a day full of fun, appreciation of nature, capturing of lasting memories and mingling with our InterNations fellow members, while touring the gardens taking photographs, having lunch at the Garden View Café, visiting the greenhouses and the Orchid Show and have drinks at the Rose Terrace Beer Garden.

We will enjoy an easy going and fun day with multiple activities. Join all of them or some, depending on your interest and availability. Following is the planned schedule of activities. The starting time of each activity is estimated and we might have some delays on the continuation with the next activity since it will be a relaxed day, but will try to stick to the schedule for the sake of those that would join only some of the activities.
