During the first two weeks of October, Chicago's trees shake off the last vestiges of summer in favor of red, orange and yellow splendor. You'll be treated to autumnal views on any old tree-lined city street, but for the most impressive results, it's best to head to Chicago parks, gardens and cemeteries packed with fall-friendly foliage (think birch, sumacs and the always resplendent red maple). You can even check out places like Millennium Park and other iconic Chicago attractions to soak in the sight of colorful leaves against cityscape vistas. Whether you prefer to wander amid nature preserves or crunch leaves on the city's downtown streets, here are all the best places to find fall foliage in Chicago.
