Landmark house designed by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe that is open to the public.
We took the Chicago Architect Foundation tour of the Farnsworth House. The tour included a comfortable bus ride from the CAF Tour Center on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. The CAF docent provided an overview on the bus - plus we watched Mies DVDs there and back. The house was gorgeous. Couple things to bring along: socks (required to enter the home) and bug spray.

Whenever there isn't an event (though those are fun), the park is a calm and shady respite on the Fox River. Let the kids run around the park, and enjoy the scenery.

The go carts were such fun! It was cool to get competitive as a family. We did 2 races and that was the end of our money. A very short outing! If you get a coupon, then it'd be a far better value and easier to justify.

We were entertained recently at the performance of Cabaret and recommend seeing this production! As usual, we are never disappointed with any of the Paramount productions and again, this is a superb performance!
It is arranged for Adults and is not age appropriate for young children! Thank you Paramount for this entertaining show of Cabaret!
One of the only disappointments at the theatre is the line for the women's rest room during the 15 minute intermission. Since a female dominated audience it is hard to get in the restroom, grab a refreshment at the bar, and back in your seat before the second half begins....
Hurrah the new theatre seats are arriving this coming summer 2018! They have served us all well over the 80 plus years!

This park in Yorkville is very nice to take a walk
Very quiet and with a fantastic view from the fox river to see the Farnsworth house from the other side of the river
Also there are some small lakes and saw people fishing there .
Very well kept and with places for pic nic

Great location right on the river. We did the 5 wine tasting for $20. I found some great choices and okay choices that provided the opportunity to select ones I liked. Great atmosphere in which to imbibe.

We love coming to The Brick Lounge! We always have a nice time here. It's a fun, casual environment that offers something for everyone. They have comedy show nights, live bands, host events, etc. Tickets for shows are very affordable and the prices at the bar too! There's causal dining like pizza, wings, mozzarella sticks. They also have slot machines, darts, pool table, etc. The place is pretty big and spread out, which is nice. Very unique set up. We will definitely keep coming back!

We visited Blackberry Farms 3 times in July/August. Twice for their summer out door concerts on Thursday evenings and once for their Wine and Canvas.
We had an awesome time for each event.
The concerts are only $5 per person and it is BYOB (or Wine/Liquor) and Picnic/Snacks.
Wine and Canvas is only $19 per person and is also BYOB (or Wine/Liquor) and Picnic/Snacks.
They supply all materials needed. Paint, canvas, instruction and an apron!
It is such a pretty place and welcoming environment a great way to have an affordable date night, couples night out with friends and family, or just with an awesome group of friends/family.
I also saw a lot of people celebrating birthdays and anniversaries.
I will attend most of their concert events next year and would like to make it to at least 2 to 3 Wine and Canvas events a year!

The new owners have made this theater a real showcase. (pun intended). The new reclining seats are a real treat, and the cleanliness of the entire theater and the restrooms is fantastic. The employees are friendly, and the free refills are wonderful, especially when you take the whole family or grandchildren. They have had $1 movies all summer for the kids with mascots, games, etc. before the show. They have special rates on Tuesdays, and every day for Seniors. The new theater is a real blessing for our community.

Raging Waves is Illinois’ largest outdoor waterpark, located on more than 45 acres in Yorkville, Ill., 45 minutes west of the Chicago loop. Every summer, families visit this Aussie-themed, family-friendly waterpark, which features 20 water slides, a separate kiddie pool area, a wave pool, a lazy river, 24 private cabanas, and more. Open in 2008, Raging Waves was named by USA Today as a top summer destination.
The water is cold - but by mid day when it's warm it's fine. If you get there first thing in the morning, you can get through the majority of attractions before the bulk of the lines start. However - it will be colder in the morning, but most kids don't mind. You can bring sealed bottled water in the park - and pack a lunch for your car, or eat inside the park (hotdogs, pizza, etc...)
