Park
“The Morton Arboretum, in Lisle, Illinois, is a public garden and outdoor museum with a library, herbarium, and program in tree research including the Center for Tree Science. Arbor Evenings: Music and More The special exhibits are always interesting, innovative, and well curated. During my last visit I had to make sure I saw the LEGO exhibit. It was breathtaking. This peacock was amazing. In an earlier couple of visits it took two visits to find all the trolls. Workmanship on them is fantastic! I’m a member, so I was able to enjoy the hunt in a couple of visits. I deducted one star because frankly while I love the space.”

Park
“My family has enjoyed strolling along this downtown Naperville attraction for over 18 years. We have seen it grow along in a very well planned and well-executed manner. It is scenic, with lots of trees, colorful foliage, and indigenous plant life bordering the walkway. You can view art and sculpture, a nearby park, and the charming Centennial Beach pool. It is calming and peaceful, but can also be active with paddle boating available, scheduled concerts, and events like the annual "Last Fling" carnival and food fest every Labor Day weekend. There is even a very affordable restaurant, the "Riverwalk Cafe" just over one of the bridges. it's a great find for casual food like burgers and salads,”

“Day 2 of golf road trip. Staying in Bolingbrook Illinois after golfing at Cog Hill #4 (awesome). Limited dining options in Bolingbrook so did the internet search and found Hugo's in Naperville. High TripAdvisor rating and this one was correct. Both excellent food and service. 5 star dining. Fresh seafood flown in daily. Locally aged beef selections. Generous portions. Escargot for app...fabulous. Ordered ribeye and surf/turf for entrees. Melt in your mouth. Impeccably seasoned. ”
