Best Place to Hug a Tree 

Holden Arboretum

The 3,500-acre Holden Arboretum is one of the nation's largest arboretums -- a living museum of forests, woodlands, meadows, ravines, rock ledges, and wetlands. Nearly 20 miles of hiking trails give access to more than 19,000 plants representing 2,199 species; the grounds are also home to approximately 200 types of birds and an active research program that studies ways to preserve and maintain this natural beauty. If wrapping your arms around one of the towering conifers, sturdy buckeyes, or flowering lilacs is not enough, you can also take guided tours, receive landscaping advice from experienced staffers, or, in the winter, cross-country ski.
