Brookfield Zoo

216-acre Zoo With Over 400 Species Of Animals.

Reviewed By David I - Oswego, Illinois

I have been to many zoos, but Brookfield never disappoints. I would highly recommend their membership if you live nearby. There is a lot to see so the family has a lot of places to go. I used to have the membership when I lived in Chicago and would just go there to walk around with my daughter. The zoo is educational and relaxing. After leaving the zoo, your kids will be ready for a nap. There is a lot of fun to be had at the zoo!!!

The wife and I had seen this neat little place on Groupon and thought it sounded interesting. Sign us up! We were on our way! Took the tour and the owner was our guide. Never know how much work goes into making whiskey! Very neat...MoreThanks for your visit, and glad you enjoyed the tour. Hope to see you again!

Max McCook Athletic & Exposition

Reviewed By Chris J - Shawnee, Kansas

This is one of the largest indoor team sports facilities available to the public. It has TWO full size soccer / football fields + four full size volleyball courts + a large dedicated pitching / hitting tunnel room, all under one roof. There is an upstairs mezzanine area to watch the action with hard metal benches plus space for camp chairs. The downside is the staff is very rude and unhelpful. Their concession stand upstairs has a very limited selection of health-poor foods. The bathrooms are very, very small for a facility of that size and several (men's room) stalls were out of order.

BuckleDown Brewing

Reviewed By angmitchell - Grand Rapids

My husband and I have a hobby of visiting craft breweries when traveling. Recently, we were in the greater Chicago area and found this one. There was a good amount of people there in the middle of the afternoon. We ordered a flight and brought home a growler. The atmosphere was fun and people were friendly. Well worth the stop.

Galloping Ghost

Reviewed By Kevin M

Found this place by chance, Now I will make the 2.5 hour drive multiple times a year from now on. Wow this place has everything you can remember and more games that you have never seen. I only saw 2 machines turned off and 1 or 2 I played had slight issues with joysticks But the other 600 machine ran flawlessly. I arrived when they opened at 11 am and just like that it was 6 pm and time to leave. Food is close by (next door and across the street) located in a nice area. I even scored an autograph from John Lee, Qbert Creator. I cant wait to come back

Graue Mill & Museum

Reviewed By Suero20 - Frankfort, Illinois

When I first started teaching, we went on field trips to the mill every year. However, our numbers became high and they could no longer accommodate such a large group. Definitely take your kids here, there is so much history and it is such an intimate setting. The bottom floor where you see the inner workings of the gristmill is a documented stop on the underground railroad. Powerful pictures are hung on the walls and the mill's significance as this spot is explained. The floor above is the charming shop and where the kids get to see the corn ground into grist. All the kids love this floor, especially because they can get a souvenir! Pick up a bag of the ground corn meal and make cornbread together! Above that is a floor devoted to machinery and above that is a floor with toys and a child's bedroom and lots of hands on things for the kids to see and touch. It's a great day especially in the Fall!

The staff member, David, helped us prepare for this event, which we needed a lot of soothing, because we were pretty nervous! If it is your first time going, don't worry, an assistant is watching the entire time and can provide hints. No phones are...MoreThank you so much for your thorough review!

Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course

Zip, swing, and climb through the trees! Go Ape Treetop Adventure is a highly interactive 2-3 hour outdoor experience featuring zip lines, tarzan swings, and awesome obstacles at heights of 40-50 feet in the trees. Go Ape is a great outdoor adventure for families, friends and groups.

Reviewed By Tom P - Western Springs, Illinois

First of all, the easiest part of this is the zip lining. BUT, you have to get to the platforms which involves climbing up rope ladders and continuing through an aerial obstacle course. Safety is stressed continually and you are always connected at least twice, sometimes three tiimes. It is a lot of fun but I recommend it to only those who are relatively fit. Completing the course is challenging as well as strenuous
When I asked our instructor how long it usually takes, she advised us its about 3 to 3 1/2 hours. However, we got behind a woman who, despite all the warnings, could not put down her phone for photos, videos and speaker phone calls. AND, she was terrified at every platform that involved an obstacle course or a zip line. Fortunately, she gave up early and quit, much to her sons displeasure. So 4 hours and 15 minutes later, we finally finished.
Finishing is an accomplishment; few of the people that started while we were there actually finished. Despite my age (retired) I was able to complete the entire course. Our group of 8 had only 4 finish; a Mom and three teens could not.
