Tom's Farm Market and Greenhouse

Reviewed By Calmac3 - Crystal Lake, Illinois

October is our favorite time to visit Tom's because of all the autumn fest and Halloween activities and apple cider donuts, but we go all year round because of the fresh fruits and vegetables and plants. The homemade pies are fantastic (especially the caramel nut apple), the fudge is delicious (and they'll give you samples), there's a small cafe/bakery that offers great sandwiches and soups, and the plants are always hearty and do well on our garden. Tom's also has a delightful gift shop on the premises--unusual jewelry, soaps, hand lotions, stationery and baby gifts--we buy a lot of presents there. Tom's has been a favorite of our entire family for years. Helpful and friendly staff.

We had a blast with our 7 and 4 year old grandchildren. They loved having so many rides to choose from and we enjoyed the all rides included admission price. The park was immaculate and the rides are in pristine condition. Most rides are nostalgic and from other kiddie parks which makes it very nostalgic. My husband and I commented several times at how nice the park looked (lovely summer plantings, koy pond and all the buildings were freshly painted.
One of the many highlights of the day was getting to visit Santa Claus. He has his own beautifully decorated summer house and each family has a private visit with him. Santa was so sweet with our grandchildren.
Thank you to the owners of Santa Village for restoring this park and making it a magical place. I would say this might be the top kiddie amusement park in the U.S.

Watch excellent movies in comfortable seats, among your friends and neighbors (who understand movie etiquette) ... on the cheap! Add Baloney's wonderful sandwiches next door and you have a very special experience. Simply the BEST.

AMC Lake In The Hills 12

Reviewed By Allen21096 - Chicago, Illinois

Located on Randall Rd., just north of Algonquin Rd., this AMC Lake in the Hills 12 is easy to find, easy to access and easy to park. They have newer amenities in the theatres, including the reclining chairs in the theatres which are really comfortable. If it is a boring movie, or a "chick flick", you should be out in minutes. They do have the Freestyle Coca Cola machines which are really great for a choice of drinks. Our advice is to join the "AMC Stubs" program as there are benefits, both immediate and that accrue.

Joe Diamond - The 13th Hour

Joe Diamond is the Mystery Performer everyone is quietly talking about. Some call him a mind reader, others call him psychic, and still more call him a magician. You now have the chance to decide for yourself, up close and personal! Only 13 people will be admitted to his studio in the 'supposedly haunted' Dole Mansion in Crystal Lake for this unique experience. “If you don’t already worship at the feet of Joe Diamond, you should really get on board.” - Varla Ventura, author of “Beyond Bizarre” "Joe Diamond is the Devil" - WGN News "I am totally floored" - You & Me This Morning "That's impossible!" - The Today Show It doesn't matter if you are a believer or a skeptic, we predict you will have a good time!

Reviewed By Carol H - Chicago, Illinois

Joe Diamond's show makes for a very fun, unusual night out. It's especially nice that it's for a smaller size audience, so everything happens close up; there's not a bad seat anywhere. It's obvious that Joe loves his work and loves entertaining; so much thought has gone into his performance, and it's great that he includes the audience as much as possible. We can't wait to return!

We try to go walk here as often as possible. There is a good variety of different paths, of different lengths, to walk or ride a bike. In the fall, the autumn colors are gorgeous. There are also a fishing lake, park headquarters building, and picnic areas.

Absolutely beautiful area with swimming, fishing, gliding on water activities, hiking trails, picnic areas , water park for kids plus some really nice places to eat. The landscaping is beautiful leaning to native plants and if you just want to sit and enjoy the view you can do that too. A definite five star experience.

Forget laser tag - a wide variety of combat scenarios. A wide variety of weapons. A professionally run, incredibly fun way to spend 2 hours.

Looking forward to having a couple parties here this summer.
