“The indoor museum in an old Italianate House is rife with taxidermy and exhibits about the area. The hiking trails are short and easy to navigate. The woods are along the Des Plaines River. There is no charge but a donation is appreciated. ”

“The legendary "White Caste". If you haven't seen the movie Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle go watch it. Super funny, but the food is quick and delicious, just be careful in the morning. If you are with a group get the crave case, lots of food for a decent price. Our favorite is the Jalapeno Cheese. ”
