Our Museum is dedicated to the art of cutting and polishing stone. We house a world class collection of jade and hard-stone cravings along with an interactive Rock and Mineral exhibit that is great for all ages!
Went with a family member to this museum. The top level has many priceless and rare jade carvings. Also quartz and gem stones were displayed. Everything was interesting and beautiful. Lower level had videos to watch and educational displays such as where crystals and fossils are found and how they are formed. Also a very well thought out gift shop is downstairs too. Only small annoyance is my family member did not like the kind of elevator they had, it had glass type walls and was very slow. Other than that it was great.

There is still time to attend a performance of Joseph at Drury Lane. Just absolutely loved the recreated version of Joseph! We were not disappointed, but we were disappointed to see many empty seats in the audience at the normally busy 2 p.m. Sunday matinee. By all means all the people that stayed home and decided not to attend this production sometimes it is good to step out of the norm and enjoy an updated modern version for 2018!
We have been enjoying plays at Drury Lane since the early 80s and we are just blessed to have this magnificent theatre in DuPage County that continues to thrive!

TopGolf takes all your favorite leisure activities – bowling, darts and golf – and fuses them with great food and drinks to form a truly unique game and outdoor entertainment facility. TopGolf requires no golf experience. What makes TopGolf so revolutionary? Each ball contains a microchip that awards points by hitting targets that look like dart boards. The further the target and the closer you get to the center, the more points you are awarded.
I've been coming to top golf since they opened almost ten years ago. Love the concept, and have always had a ton of fun. I'll start with the pros...
Service has always been fantastic here. Deborah, our waitress, admitted she had only been there for three days but she coulda fooled us with her attentiveness and smile. She was great, and when she didn't have an answer to our questions, she promptly found someone that could help us appropriately. She was terrific. The food and drink was great as always. Little pricey but nothing too bad. When we had issues with the game/technology, those who came to help us were nothing but professional and friendly, and eager to help.
That being said, we had several issues with the game and the technology behind it. So the Cons...
This was one of the original six locations built over ten years ago. With many new locations going up worldwide, this one feels like it's been left behind. I haven't seen a single update since the place was built. And with that comes issues with the actual game play. During my first game, I had several shots that clearly went into scoring zones but no score was recorded. (Yes, the balls were all scanned into play properly). We were consistently having to enter our scores manually which is tough as sometimes you can't see exactly which zone the ball went into. When we asked for help with it, we were told it was just the old technology that sometimes doesn't keep up. After that first game, the machines seemed to work okay for a couple games, then went right back to not scoring properly. Then, the display would freeze, preventing us from choosing different games or changing our scores which we unfortunately had to do a lot. Just not the game experience I've come to enjoy from top golf. Again, any time we had an issue, the staff were professional, prompt and super friendly, but they unfortunately couldn't help us out too much with just plain old technology. It was top of the line when it came out, but ten years later it needs some help. After visiting locations like Naperville and Las Vegas, it needs a serious facelift, especially with prices rising regularly.
All in all still a great night out. But if they want to keep up with the premium nightlife game, this location will need to invest in some updates to the technology.

As if the Bensenville Theatre could not do enough for its patrons, during the summer they have a public library series in the afternoon that is free. Each Monday at 1:00 p.m. the Bensenville Theatre in conjunction with the Bensenville Community Public Libary has FREE movies for kids, as well as their adults, too! Today we went to see "The Lorax", an older movie, but good for the kids nonetheless. The staff is really friendly and helpful.

Another theater gone to assigned seating. By the time we got there, half an hour before the show time, all the seats in the back were taken. They have gone the way of food and drink with recliner seats and tables...no thanks. We will be sticking with 7 bridges in Lisle.

Ever dream of flying? Now you can at iFLY Indoor Skydiving in Rosemont. Experience the thrill of skydiving without having to jump from a perfectly good airplane - no falling, no parachutes, just you floating on a smooth cushion of air with our professional instructor right next to you. No special skills are needed, just a sense of adventure. iFLY is safe for kids 3 and up, fun for the entire family, and perfect for birthday parties or groups. iFLY is the experience of a lifetime.
Well oiled machine! People all VERY friendly! Entire experience from time you enter the door to exiting is 1 hour. Pricey, but totally worth it! Give yourself extra time to get there. Coming from the north, it was not easy finding the parking lot in front of iFLY. Our instructor was fantastic - friendly, knowledgeable, entertaining, etc..!! My 10 year old and 13 year old daughters LOVED it (& made the extra $9.95 for the high fly worth it). We had a (just turned) 5 year old and older, "less athletic" people in our group and each one looked to have an equally fun time! HIGHLY recommend!!

Production Brewery located in Itasca Illinois. Come by to see the brewery, have a pint and take home a growler!
We recently stopped in for a flight of beers a while back while traveling through the area with pre-teen youngsters. The brewery is a open floor plan style brewery tucked away in an industrialized part of town and there was plenty of seating on a Friday afternoon. I am not sure I'd go so far as to call them family friendly but they were very accommodating and made us feel welcome.
As far as the beer goes, it was run-of-the-mill in my opinion. Nothing stood out as being really great but nothing seemed sub par either. Basically, I'd go back if I were in the area but doubt I'd fill a growler with anything. That said, I recommend you stop in and see if you like their beer because that's what it's really all about...

Orchids by Hausermann is located just north of North Ave. on Addison Rd. We were looking for a cold weather adventure with my grandkids and decided to go here to view their orchids. They do have an extensive collection. The staff was more than nice and they answered all of our questions. The grandkids loved the flowers. My 2 year old granddaughter fell in love with all orchids - purple or pink. My 4 year old grandson was really enthralled by the Venus Flytrap.
