Manteno Antique Mall

Reviewed By Billie B - Peotone

Not impressed. Expensive, people were rude, and most of the stuff was junk. A good garage sale is cheaper and better stuff. Maybe if you are looking for something specific, you might be able to find it, but you are going to pay dearly. Not worth the trip

Kankakee River State Park

Reviewed By johnmorrissey27 - Villa Park, Illinois

The Park is, well, certainly not as inviting as Chain o' Lakes State Park. The campsites are poorly maintained, the water quality of the river is rather poor, and litter is everywhere. The parking lots are used for hook ups and the out houses are in a general state of disrepair.

Tribes Alehouse & Grill

Reviewed By micknewt - Flowery Branch, Georgia

Some of the best food I've ever had at a brewery/grill/bar setting. Reasonably priced meals with an extensive variety draft beers and food (Hint: don't go to the website first found when Googlng). Go to tribesalehouse.com then check out the food and beer selections. Overlook the fact that the Mokena location is in a strip mall. Don't believe the photo that Google pulls up, I have no idea where they got that pix. You won't be disappointed when you get inside. We went mid-afternoon on a Friday and it was busy but not overcrowded and we had fast and excellent service. There were four of us and we all enjoyed our meals and craft beers. I had the pan-seared Cajun mahi and it was very good and an excellent local IPA to drink. There were a couple of expensive food items. Maybe they are worth it but I don't know.

Ryan Round Barn

Reviewed By Kris R - Mapleton, Illinois

Our Camping Club recently visited the Ryan Round Barn in Kewanee, Illinois. It was constructed by Dr. Laurence Ryan in 1910 for his Black Angus cattle, imported from Scotland. Dr. Ryan was born in the 1860's and enjoyed a reputation as an international brain surgeon and also was a pioneer in plastic surgery. The barn was completed in 1910 at a cost of $9600 and is a true round barn. It is 85-feet in diameter and 90-foot high to the cupola. The horizontal siding is made of pine and was said to have been soaked overnight in a nearby pond in order to be made pliable enough to bend onto the convex exterior wall. The loft is capable of holding 250 tons of loose hay. Today the barn houses a large display of antique machinery and other artifacts of farm days past. The barn was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places on December 31, 1974. Our group thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it to others. The admission was $2-3 per person.

Beecher Depot Museum

Reviewed By John W - Peru, Illinois

While out for the day train watching in the area, I stopped at the local depot which contains the town's museum and of course history of the former IC&E railroad now the CSX/UP joint line. While the outside looks great the inside looks immaculate. It even includes a recreation of the ticket office. Plenty of history ranging from the town's founder, to baseball, and more. There's a nice little park nearby along with a Missouri Pacific caboose. Perfect location to watch trains as the line gets busy. It's only open on Saturdays for now from 10-12 but it's worth seeing if you are in the area!!

October 1, 2016. Crete, Illinois.
Crete was my hometown until 1974, which means that upon my departure I became an "exCretion". (Bad Pete!)
We have stopped for a brief visit with my Mother as we make the final miles to Kansas City. In my youth the Crete Lanes and Lounge was a popular venue at the town's main intersection. The last few years were not kind to the "Lanes" and its doors eventually closed. Fast forward to 2016 and a new marque has made its appearance in place of the bowling alley. Evil Horse Brewing is one of the thousands of micro-breweries that have sprouted in the last decade, like wildflowers across the American landscape. However, Evil Horse presents a remarkably extensive array of beers, representing a broad spectrum of the brewer's art. What is more, is that they are ALL well done and true to style... which in my experience is both noteworthy and rare.
In a nod to local tradition, Evil Horse has incorporated the old Crete Lanes neon sign into its upscale decor, and even repurposed the bowling lanes into the bar and table tops. A retired train track does duty as a footrest for those enjoying the "beerscape" from the bar. Assistant Manager, Alison, was knowledgable and a delight.
If there is a tear for the passing of the "Lanes", then raise a toast and a cheer with the damn fine beer crafted here in Crete Illinois, the hometown of my youth.
Peace! Pete

Exploration Station...a children's museum

Exploration Station...a children's museum is a hands-on exploration and discovery museum for children and their families, teachers and other caregivers. At Exploration Station children can climb inside the tower of a castle, drive a fire truck, fly an airplane, shop in a grocery store, be a mechanic, dig for dinosaur bones, and much more! Children of all ages are welcome at the museum, however, the majority of the exhibits are designed for children between the ages of 2-8 years old. We have an enclosed sensory area for our little explorers as well! Children must be accompanied by an adult and adults must be accompanied by children when visiting the museum.

Reviewed By Dennis C - Bourbonnais

Kids have a great time there. Recently remodeled with new stuff. Cheap admission. They don't want the kids there running wild though. Parents need to be at least in the building. They have staff that do shows periodically during some days of the week. Large playground on the grounds. Large area for picnics and the usual park type BBQ grills if parents want to make some hotdogs and burgers.

Crisis Rooms

Reviewed By Lanzen - Elkhart, Indiana

My husband surprised me with an afternoon at Crisis Rooms for my birthday in September 2017. We had never been and had no idea what to expect.

The check in was really smooth and organized, with an electronic waiver and a few videos to watch. We were excited!

Our first room was Infected, which was really challenging! We didn't realize there were different levels of challenge on the rooms, and infected was in the middle. Also, it was just him and I alone....I think having more minds working together may have helped.

We did Apartment 10b for a second room, which had another couple booked with us. We enjoyed this one more simply because 1. We now knew what to expect and how the game worked, and 2. We had two extra minds. We made it right to the end, but ultimately lost.

The rooms are REALLY well thought out and put together. The clever mindset it took to put this all together is really amazing. The clues and the puzzles really make you think outside the box, which is so much fun!

This is really one of the neatest adult experiences that I've ever done and we will definitely return to try out different rooms!

I recommend doing more than one room if it is your first time. You get good on the second one!
