First Division Museum at Cantigny

Museum with interactive exhibits on the trenches of WWI, the beaches of WWII and the rice paddies of Vietnam.

Reviewed By william f

This museum is located on the grounds of Cantigny Park the summer home of Robert McCormick who served with the First Division in WW I.
Outside the museum are several tanks from WW I to present.
A self guided tour takes you from the trenches of WW I to the rice paddies of Vietnam.
We spent too much time and were not able to visit the second half of the museum showing the present and future of the first division.

TopGolf Chicago

TopGolf takes all your favorite leisure activities – bowling, darts and golf – and fuses them with great food and drinks to form a truly unique game and outdoor entertainment facility. TopGolf requires no golf experience. What makes TopGolf so revolutionary? Each ball contains a microchip that awards points by hitting targets that look like dart boards. The further the target and the closer you get to the center, the more points you are awarded.

I've been coming to top golf since they opened almost ten years ago. Love the concept, and have always had a ton of fun. I'll start with the pros...

Service has always been fantastic here. Deborah, our waitress, admitted she had only been there for three days but she coulda fooled us with her attentiveness and smile. She was great, and when she didn't have an answer to our questions, she promptly found someone that could help us appropriately. She was terrific. The food and drink was great as always. Little pricey but nothing too bad. When we had issues with the game/technology, those who came to help us were nothing but professional and friendly, and eager to help.

That being said, we had several issues with the game and the technology behind it. So the Cons...

This was one of the original six locations built over ten years ago. With many new locations going up worldwide, this one feels like it's been left behind. I haven't seen a single update since the place was built. And with that comes issues with the actual game play. During my first game, I had several shots that clearly went into scoring zones but no score was recorded. (Yes, the balls were all scanned into play properly). We were consistently having to enter our scores manually which is tough as sometimes you can't see exactly which zone the ball went into. When we asked for help with it, we were told it was just the old technology that sometimes doesn't keep up. After that first game, the machines seemed to work okay for a couple games, then went right back to not scoring properly. Then, the display would freeze, preventing us from choosing different games or changing our scores which we unfortunately had to do a lot. Just not the game experience I've come to enjoy from top golf. Again, any time we had an issue, the staff were professional, prompt and super friendly, but they unfortunately couldn't help us out too much with just plain old technology. It was top of the line when it came out, but ten years later it needs some help. After visiting locations like Naperville and Las Vegas, it needs a serious facelift, especially with prices rising regularly.

All in all still a great night out. But if they want to keep up with the premium nightlife game, this location will need to invest in some updates to the technology.

Reviewed By CharlieV2011 - Chicago, Illinois

I absolutely love this quaint winery and the wine selection, especially the fruit wine. The winery in Roselle is small and quaint and offers wine tasting at a great price. The fruit wines are the best, especially the blueberry and strawberry. As of recently, their wines are sold at a department store in Chicago, and I couldn’t be happier. Great wines, nice history, and great gifts available!

Reviewed By georgerE9770EQ - Schaumburg, Illinois

We love the 135 acres of fields,forests, marshes and streams right off Schaumburg, Road in the Village itself. Also the fact that this is the way the area was 100 years ago in this area. There are 3 miles of paths ( all handicapped accessible) and flowers of all kinds. In addition for the children, there is the Bison's Bluff Nature Playground that is always filled with kids having a great time in a nature set up.
There is a Nature Center, a Heritage Farm, and an old Log Cabin to explore and learn what was going on 100 years ago when this was a small German Village. In addition 4 times during the year there are special "Highlights" available. And all year there are things going on at the Nature Center and the Heritage Farm.
Hours vary during the year, but normally 8 to 8 in the Summer Season and 8 to 5 in the Winter Season; and the whole thing is FREE!
We love to come for a walk, and the Grand kids love to walk, see,learn and play at the Playground!! This is an Attraction Not to be Missed!

We hosted our grandson's 8th birthday party here. Everyone was friendly, and our helpers were terrific. We think our hosts were Abbie & Jake. The kids had a great time, and the pizza was deliious, too. The place was very clean, and the children were always supervised. What a great way to celebrate! Our party was a huge success!

Another theater gone to assigned seating. By the time we got there, half an hour before the show time, all the seats in the back were taken. They have gone the way of food and drink with recliner seats and tables...no thanks. We will be sticking with 7 bridges in Lisle.

We went to Kline Creek Farm for their Country Fair day over the Labor Day holiday. We had a great time touring the grounds and participating in the "Fair" activities. This is a beautiful place to take family pictures too. Wonderful to support a historical gem and show your children a by gone era.

Reviewed By Steve B - Carol Stream

Been to this theater several times. They do NOT show "first run" movies. The seats are powered recliners in all theaters. It's decently clean. The screens are as large as in any average cineplex. Sound quality is ok.
If you want to see a picture on the big screen instead of your TV at a reasonable price, this is the place.

Vertical Endeavors

Reviewed By Liz G - Chicago, Illinois

We came here for a team building and wellness event for work. We had a side room with tables where we could bring snacks and put our coats and other items. The place is really huge! They have lots of different levels of climbing walls, which was great since we had people with different abilities. I had been indoor rock climbing before, but this was the first time I had gone where there was an auto belay system. It was a little terrifying the first time you used it, but it was very cool. I was surprised how much independence they gave our group. It was a great work out, we were there for two hours and I wouldn't have gone any longer than that. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I want to go back and try a few more of the walls that I didn't get to do!!
