Item Description

The Chicago city motto “Urbs in Horto” means ‘City in a Garden’, a tribute to its historic reverence for parks and gardens that has fully blossomed in the past few decades. This package for 2 people includes 2 nights at a Downtown Chicago hotel, 2 VIP tickets to the 2018 Chicago Flower & Garden Show with a private tour by show organizers, and a $100 gift card to Texas de Brazil.

The City of Chicago offers 29 miles of protected lakefront including 23 beaches, 8100 acres of parkland, 2 lush conservatories and the ‘Emerald Necklace which connects Olmsted-designed parks, including Jackson Park, host of the 1902 World’s Fair, with 30 miles of landscaped boulevards.  

“Chicago is Blooming” is the theme of this year’s Chicago Flower & Garden Show, which will celebrate the city’s culture, art, design, neighborhoods, and community. Included in this package are two tickets to this remarkable event, which features more than 20 gardens, dozens of inspirational and education speakers, and daily hands-on activities for gardeners of all ages and experience levels. The winner of this package will be treated to a private tour of the show, so you can experience the show like no one else.

All this touring will make you hungry, so you can use the $100 gift card to Texas de Brazil that is included in this package.
