Naperville - Things To Do

I have lived in Naperville for over 9 years before moving to our current house 6 months ago, it was sad for me to move but we are only one suburb away!

While you are in the area, here are some of the things to do in Naperville!

Naperville Riverwalk
Located downtown Naperville, a beautiful place to stroll through - Highly recommended

Downtown Naperville
Plenty to do here, from shopping to gourmet food! Don't forget to check out Heaven On Seven, one of my favorite hang out, yummy gumbo!

The Naper Settlement
523 South Webster Street (630) 420.6010
Naperville has a museum village which records the area's history from its early days to the late 1900s. The chapel at the the museum is a very popular place for "tying the knot". . Summer hours are: April through October Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, 1-4 p.m. . The sculpture is entitled "Horse Market Days" and is outside the Pre-Exemption House -- the first tavern and inn west of Chicago.

Dupage Children's Museum
301 N. Washington St. (630) 637-8000
The Dupage Children's Museum needed a new space and a builder's supply company was moving out of downtown so ... the museum got a marvelous location next to the train station and very near the center of downtown. . If you are an adult let me recommend that you find a child to take you here :)))

Centennial Beach
500 W. Jackson Ave. (630)848-5090
For a refreshing swim!
