I usually have something significant on my mind, and the quiet peace and beauty clears my head as I walk it out. I don't always remember the landscape details of my few hours stroll, but I always ...Popular withOutdoorBudgetWellness

The roller coasters are nice, but the park is pretty small and crowded. They do have a pager system that allows you to reserve places in line without being present.Popular withFamiliesAdventure

The oldest Baha'i temple in the world, and the only one in the United States, both the grounds of the complex in a northern suburb of Chicago, and the temple building itself, are quite lovely.

Summer concerts at Ravinia are one of the best nights you can have in Chicagoland. A large spread out grassy area can hold several thousands of people with lawn chairs, and baskets full of wine and food grouped together as if they were gathering for a picnic. The best part is you can enjoy your time listening to great artists ...Popular withOutdoorLocalFoodies

This cineplex has 18 screens. The theaters are comfortable and clean. The movies look good and sound good. There's a good selection of food and snacks, and the lobby looks more like a hotel lobby, complete with a bar. Parking is convenient and there are lots of places downtown Evanston for a meal before or after the movie. It's mostly ...

The Grosse Point Lighthouse on Sheridan was built in 1873 because so many ships approaching Chicago were wrecking off the shore of Evanston. It's still working too. It's now maintained as a national landmark with a nice park around it. During the summer weekends they lead free tours and allow people to go to the top of the lighthouse.

This seems like it is more than it is. It's a candy store with a "tour" that's really a tram ride around a distribution warehouse. The only candy you'll see being made is on video. The candy store in front is nothing special.Popular withFamiliesBudget

This warren of book rooms is tucked away in an alley in downtown Evanston. Visit soon, as the elderly owner is on the verge of closing shop. In additions to books he's collected all manner of memorabilia and quirky decor.

Perfect place to go for a bit of Asian shopping and food. Grocery store carries many things that cant be found in large US chains and the food court has always been top notch. Other small shops are also interesting though they tend to change each time I visit.
