If you've ever taken a stroll through their gardens then you know this privilege is deserved. 

Anderson Gardens was just given the honor this week to be on the cover and the featured story in the bi-annual magazine that highlights Illinois tourism. Thanks to Anderson's, a few other attractions in the area will get some coverage.

If you're like so many in town (myself included at one time) who never went to the Gardens because they were so close you didn't think they could be that good, you owe it to yourself to make a trip. The Gardens are absolutely stunning and you can view them year-round from their on-site restaurant Fresco.

Congrats to David and the gang. You make the city proud.
