216-acre Zoo With Over 400 Species Of Animals.
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!!!

Owned by the Village of Bridgeview and operated by Andell Sports Group, Toyota Park is a world-class soccer stadium and concert venue located at the corner of 71st & Harlem in Bridgeview, Illinois. Toyota Park has 20,000 dedicated seats for soccer and up to 28,000 dedicated seats for concerts. The state-of the art venue also has 48 luxury suites, numerous hospitality areas, and a full service Stadium Club.
We went to Toyota Park to enjoy a Chicago Fire soccer game with children and grandchildren. This is the second time that I visited the venue (the first time was a couple of years after it opened). I was pleasantly surprised to find a well maintained, efficiently operated, secure, family friendly venue. The food and beverage vendors were reasonably priced (for a sports venue), easily available, and the food was very good. The staff was friendly, helpful, and polite. In short, our visit to this venue was a totally enjoyable experience. A bit of advice; if attending an evening event find seating on the west side of the venue, otherwise you'll be looking into the sunset.

Certainly, one of the more interesting things about cemeteries is the old architecture and headstones. Resurrection does not disappoint in that regard. The cemetery also has been the site of several sightings of "Resurrection Mary", though I have a feeling that some of the sightings are after a long night of drinking in the local bars.

The Fine and Performing Arts Center offers an array of music, dance, theater, and art for all ages. Home to the Dorothy Menker Theater, the John and Angeline Oremus Theater, and the Robert F. DeCaprio Art Gallery, the center opened its doors in 1994. The center prides itself as a showcase for performances, a catalyst for budding artists to practice their art, a center for academic preparation for two-year degrees and transfer programs, and a resource for all who love the arts and want to learn more. The mission of the Fine and Performing Arts center, through its public presentations of dance, music, theater and the visual arts, is to enrich the members of the college community by providing opportunities for people of all ages to experience and grow through the arts.
We are so lucky to have this beautiful entertainment center just a few miles away. The center features 2 theaters, one large enough to hold concerts, choral groups and top entertainers. There is plenty of parking (free) and they usually have light refreshments (coffee, sweets, etc) available for sale. The Art Gallery is usually open before and during the intermission.

Lake Katherine is a botanical garden in Palos Heights, right off Rt 83 near 76th that includes woodlands, prairie, wetlands, and formal gardens. There is a nature center that is fun to check out, a mile loop walking trail around a ten acres lake. I rented kayaks for 2, single but they also have canoes, and double kayaks for rent. There are workers who give you life jacket, brief kayaking tips, and help you get in/out of the water. No escorted. Calm waters. We saw heron, geese, ducks, turtles, and fish. Very pleasant. I reserved ahead (very easy with phone call) and was glad.. Some people came in as we were there and asked about renting a kayak... No luck, they were all booked up. The nature center closes @4, so that is the latest you can kayak. Free parking. You can bring a picnic lunch if you want. Beautiful grounds. They also rent out for events.
Tomorrow is the Butterfly Festival. Lots of things to do check out the web site. Kid friendly. Bathrooms on site.

A craft distillery producing hand-made artisan spirits in historic Riverside, Illinois.
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!

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.

Chicago Ridge Mall offers great shopping near Chicago at over 130 stores. In the mall and nearby Commons Shopping Center are restaurants and an AMC movie theater. Find Khol's department store, Bed Bath & Beyond and other stores in the mall, just east of I-294 at 95th St.
I once loved this mall because it had beautiful plants and fountains. Since they have low quality merchants, it is far from desirable. Yankee Candle and KB Toys are the only decent stores. Otherwise, find another mall if you want a decent variety.

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.

Great place to take a hike and visit the new nature center. Live turtles, birds, owls, snakes and fish. Great area for kids to play and learn about nature.
