Continuing with another journey centered on great cities on the Great Lakes, our 6 day/5 night tour this coming fall will find the Arboretum exploring the gardens of Cleveland and Northern Ohio. Like last year’s visit to Chicago and Milwaukee, Cleveland has the flavor of a hard-working, ethnic city with a lot to see and do. The vibrant lakeside city of Cleveland is filled with world-class arts, hip eateries and bars, cool concert clubs and top-notch attractions like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Cleveland Museum of Art and the a lively Theater District. Travel & Leisure Magazine, Fodor’s, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times all have listed Cleveland on their list of must-visit cities for 2015.

The area is also rich in horticultural gems such as the Holden Arboretum, the Cleveland Botanical Garden, and the Cleveland Cultural Gardens. Nearby gardens include Stan Hywet Hall and Garden, Kingwood Gardens and Quailcrest Farms.

Gardens and Castles and Scotland

This delightful tour was such a success in 2013 that we decided to go back, this time in spring to take advantage of the spectacular beauty of the Azaleas and Rhododendrons. We have put together an itnerary that visits some of the favorite sites from the 2013 tour, as well as new destinations and gardens. We begin off the west coast of Scotland on the Isle of Bute, continuing on to the Northwest coast and the much-talked-about Inverewe Gardens. We'll cruise Lock Ness in Inverness and then head to the garden city of Aberdeen. Our last stops are Pitlochery and Edinburgh, with its famed castle and Royal Botanic Garden. Book by Oct. 31 for an early bird discount!
