Marriott Theatre

Reviewed By Jhjani

Went with a bus group of theatre students to see Newsies at the Marriott Lincolnshire. The production was fast-paced and exciting to watch. The actors are so close and constantly moving around so everyone in the theatre could see them. The singing and dancing were very well done. Scene changes were quick as actors moved set pieces up and down the aisle. Looking forward to attending another production here, as it’s easy to get to and parking is free.

Long Grove Confectionery Co.

Reviewed By illinois travelere

I have been shopping here FOREVER.
The Long Grove Confectionery Outlet offers great product; wonderful prices; samples to try before you buy; and really helpful, friendly sales people.
It's always a good idea to stop by after a holiday for the markdowns.
They are justifiably famous for their seasonal specialities -- molded chocolates, chocolate-covered strawberries, and hand-dipped caramel apples.

Arlington Park

Described as "the most beautiful track in America", Arlington began Thoroughbred racing on October 13, 1927, when more than 20,000 fans braved the cold weather to celebrate the event in high style. Since then, Arlington International has become a social destination and perfect summer hangout to watch and wager on the amazing sport of Thoroughbred horse racing! Arlington offers beautiful venues for everything from corporate outings to reunions to weddings, and it's the ideal spot for groups of friends to catch-up, watch the ponies and meet new people. From Miller Lite Party in the Park on Friday, to Miller Lite Horses & Hops on Saturdays, to Sunday Family Days presented by Daily Herald and Lipton Iced Tea, it's always a great time!

It seems like there aren’t many tracks left in the country. This is one of the classics. Totally destroyed and rebuilt, and now their racing season is a festive highlight of summer capped off by the Arlington Million. It has excellent banquet facilities, a beautiful clubhouse and great food.

Edward L. Ryerson Conservation Area

Reviewed By illinois travelere

We saw quite a few families enjoying the many activities at Ryerson....especially all the gorgeous fall photo ops!

Today the resident screech owl was meeting and greeting in the Welcome Center, Because of an eye injury, she cannot survive in the wild, so she lives at Ryerson. Her protective coloration is striking -- and watching her turn her head 270 degrees is fascinating. Owls have fixed eye sockets, so since they can't move their eyes, they have to turn their heads, Exorcist-style.

Another great activity was to get a free container of food (limit one per family per visit) at the Center to feed the chickens and sheep.

It was a perfect day to hike the leaf-covered trails to the Des Plaines river.

Deer Park Town Center

Reviewed By illinois travelere

According to A. Alfred Taubman -- philanthropist and suburban shopping mall designer -- parking belongs in front of stores, with easy access to the entrances.

I don't know what he'd make of Deer Park.

If you want to see the entire mall,which has a linear design, you will have to backtrack, rather than circle.

However, if you're coming to visit a particular store -- there are over 70 -- chances are you'll be able to park very close to it. My favourite stops are Paper Source, Anthropologie, and Williams-Sonoma.

Beverage and food places are pretty much clustered in one location.

The Century sixteen-screen theater is behind the mall.

Deer Park has a California vibe -- both in architectural style and in fresh air/exercise benefits.

We booked our grandsons party here and I have to say both my husband and myself were totally impressed! We had quite a few kiddos and adults and the staff was super organized, very helpful and just very kind. Everything was unbelievably clean! I mean with kids and germs this impressed me the most.

Regal Cinemas Lincolnshire Stadium 21 & IMAX

Reviewed By illinois travelere

Such comfortable reclining seats.....I worried that I would fall asleep and miss the movie. Fortunately, the film was quite engaging, so I was able to relax and watch without drifting off.

The parking lot remodeling is completed, and they were working on the landscaping when we visited today.
The remaining construction site will be apartment buildings.

You choose your seat(s) when you pay for it/them -- either in advance online or at the ticket window. The seating chart is easy to understand....and there really aren't any bad seats....especially in a theater with a curved screen.

Typically, there 7 or 8 rows, front to back, and 14 or so seats across. (There are larger and smaller theaters as well.)

And if you love the popcorn, there is now a microwave version available.

Metropolis is a great little theater in Arlington Hts. They offer such a variety of experiences, music, comedy, and of course plays. Through the years I've attended many of these shows and have never been disappointed. There are no bad seats and only great entertainment. There is something for everyone and at a reasonable price.
