Horseshoe Hammond

Reviewed By barbaragW6306SG - Chicago

{Presently, horseshoe has not paid out much but its still a fun place to spend some down time. Food is exceptional at the buffet and the steak house is awesome with a great view of the lake.

Gayety's Chocolates & Ice Cream Co.

Reviewed By ktjmitchell - Frankfort, Illinois

Ok, the shakes with the homemade whipped cream and cookies are KILLER, the candies are superb, and the atmosphere is quaint. Like many, I was introduced to the deliciousness of Gayety's by my mom at the former location on Commercial Avenue in Chicago (any one else a bit intimidated by old man Papageorge behind the register with his gigantic cigar?). Since then the establishment has been going strong under the guidance of his nephew Lee and then Jim (Lee's son). NOT the place to go if you are watching your caloric intake but sooooo worth the occasional splurge!

Community Veterans Memorial

Community Veterans Memorial is a 6.5 acre park featuring bronze and granite sculptures, and life-size monuments to depict the major military conflicts that shaped the 20th Century. The memorial imparts a reflective and provocative vision for peace. From the trenches of World War I through the Pacific beaches and European battles of World War II, the extreme weather and combat conditions of Korea, the rugged brutal fire fights of Vietnam, and the sandy sea of Desert Storm, the memorial pays the highest tribute to all veterans. A commemorative brick pathway leads visitors on their journey through history. Individuals and groups are invited to take self-guided tours in which several stations provide pre-recorded information about the defining wars of the 20th Century. Guided tours are also available.

Reviewed By Tikilounge_SEA - New York City, New York

This should be visited by every veteran who passes through Northwest Indiana, preferably with family/friends as it can be overwhelming. A forgone conclusion is a visit to VFW Post 6448 in Dyer or American Legion Post 697 in Lansing but we managed to try a third option hidden in the industrial park behind the memorial (Three Floyds Brewery) and the entire staff made us feel more welcome than previously thought possible.

Escape Room NWI

Reviewed By Misty D

My husband and I are avid game room enthusiasts. We were making a trip to Chicago and wanted to hit a few on our way. We decided on this one as one of our stops. It was noon and I was in the process of booking the 1:30 room. I didn't put "2" people accidentally so I went back to fix it and the game was gone. I reset, exited and reentered....nothing. it was gone. So my husband called and they asked how many people....he said 2. They informed him that it takes their employees that amount of time to get there when a room is booked. I find it difficult to believe 5 mitues would have made a huge difference. Out of the dozens of rooms we have been to, never have we ran across this type of scenerio. My advice would be to book way in advance to ensure someone can make it there to run the game for you.

Three Floyds Brewing Co

Reviewed By LivetheWay - Flossmoor, Illinois

Without hesitation, I would recommend Floyds. The staff is ultra friendly and I love the loud vibe of the place. The auditory overload with metal music and movies in the background set up an atmosphere of fun and anticipation of a great meal and drink to come. We were not disappointed. My husband, teen daughters, and I shared lots of appetizers- the cheese board, cheese curds, and dumplings were outrageously great. Our mains were the fried chicken sandwich, the cod sandwich, ramen, and a burger. The attention to detail (assaulting every taste - sweet, salty, sour, spicy) was outstanding. Everything was house made and the beer is special. They love what they do at Floyds and it shows.

This place has the greatest beer in the area. It's getting more well known. It's the hidden gem in Lansing. If you like a really good beer one trick pony is the place to go.
