There are lights displays—and then there is Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum. The two almost don’t belong in the same category of holiday exhibits. Illumination is a multi-sensory experience of lights, sound, and colors amidst the gorgeous trees at The Morton Arboretum. From the socially distanced safety of your cozy car, wind through the Arboretum for a 30-40 minute drive through Symphony Woods, Woodland Wonder, and Crystal Promenade. The exhibit syncs up to your car radio for an instant soundtrack to the dancing lasers, twinkling lights, and dazzling winter landscapes. And with five new exhibits planned for 2020, there are new surprises around every corner even if Illumination is an attraction that you visit each year.
