3.Denada Forest Preserve
Beautiful place to come and just relax. In October, their Fall Fest has plenty of activities, including a visit via tractor-drawn hay wagon to their “antique” farm, with no tractors or implements newer than the 1970s.They have long trails suitable for bikes and if you are willing to walk far enough it links up to nearby forest reserves like Herrick Lake. A great variety of nature from woods, to mashland, to prarie, and an area meant for horses.The Walking trail passes through a few nice gardens. White gravel path goes around a large pond.
Nice maze garden with only one way in and out surrounding by beautiful trees, a quite place, a great place if you come as family.
5.Sensory Garden Playground
Highly recommended place if you come as family, The skill of the artists was amazing. And so many pumpkins! if took your children and I about 50 minutes to walk through. you actually looked at the scenes and artwork along with a lot of picture taking. Definitely worth the price of the groupon.
6.The Morton Arboretum
This is a very large arboretum, perfect for an afternoon of hiking and biking, or a family visit to the children’s area. It can get crowded, but they handle crowds very well and the parking is very organized. The children’s area is very adventurous and perfect for little kids. The food is also very delicious, and not too overpriced. The hiking and biking trails out in the woods are very well-kept and fun. Some highlights for me are the expansive hedge maze with a lookout tower encompassing a tree, and the wading pond where you can catch tadpoles and water-bugs. This arboretum is a long drive from Chicago, but the trek is definitely worth it.
If you love science and would enjoy learning about a cutting edge physics research facility visit Fermilab for a tour. You don’t have to have a firm grasp of particle physics to appreciate the research being done here. You can marvel at the concepts of muons and neutrinos and have a delightful time exploring and discovering the latest contributions from this unique laboratory. Great fun for adults and curious kids.
While this is officially supposed to be called the “Moser Tower and Millennium Carillon,” everyone just calls it the Millennium Carillon. For $3 during the summer, you can take the tour, climb the 253 steps to the top to see the Carillon, and check out Rotary Hill and Naperville’s views. It is amazing to watch the carillon being played. See the photos. Beautiful place. Inexpensive. Wonderful views
