Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art

Our Museum is dedicated to the art of cutting and polishing stone. We house a world class collection of jade and hard-stone cravings along with an interactive Rock and Mineral exhibit that is great for all ages!

Reviewed By GrandmaLChicagoArea - Chicago Area

Went with a family member to this museum. The top level has many priceless and rare jade carvings. Also quartz and gem stones were displayed. Everything was interesting and beautiful. Lower level had videos to watch and educational displays such as where crystals and fossils are found and how they are formed. Also a very well thought out gift shop is downstairs too. Only small annoyance is my family member did not like the kind of elevator they had, it had glass type walls and was very slow. Other than that it was great.

Drury Lane Theatre

Reviewed By Mamaw58 - Lombard, Illinois

There is still time to attend a performance of Joseph at Drury Lane. Just absolutely loved the recreated version of Joseph! We were not disappointed, but we were disappointed to see many empty seats in the audience at the normally busy 2 p.m. Sunday matinee. By all means all the people that stayed home and decided not to attend this production sometimes it is good to step out of the norm and enjoy an updated modern version for 2018!
We have been enjoying plays at Drury Lane since the early 80s and we are just blessed to have this magnificent theatre in DuPage County that continues to thrive!

Oakbrook Center

Reviewed By sandra n - Lemont, Illinois

Oak Brook Mall is the best mall in Chicago's western suburbs and also one of the best in the Chicagoland area. Without a doubt, this is the place for all the best quality shops around and is a very successful mall. It is an open air outside mall. That's the only thing I don't like in the colder months, but in the nicer weather, it is great! This is the place to find quality and the service is usually consistently very good in most of the stores. Check it out!!

Reviewed By thelittlebird - Rocky River, Ohio

Well oiled machine! People all VERY friendly! Entire experience from time you enter the door to exiting is 1 hour. Pricey, but totally worth it! Give yourself extra time to get there. Coming from the north, it was not easy finding the parking lot in front of iFLY. Our instructor was fantastic - friendly, knowledgeable, entertaining, etc..!! My 10 year old and 13 year old daughters LOVED it (& made the extra $9.95 for the high fly worth it). We had a (just turned) 5 year old and older, "less athletic" people in our group and each one looked to have an equally fun time! HIGHLY recommend!!

Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio

The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio served as Wright's private residence and workplace from 1889 to 1909--the first 20 years of his career. Here Wright developed a new American architecture: the Prairie style. Trained interpreters offer insights into Wright's family life and architectural career. Enjoy guided tours of the museum complex and neighboring historic district seven days a week. Tour details are available on the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust website.

Reviewed By Bob E - Ada, Michigan

This place where Wright did some of his earliest and best work as a young architectural genius is well worth an hour. Seeing how Wright created a new American architecture among other European style homes shows both his courage to step out and lead in developing a new style and his genius in making spaces that were formative and inspiring for family and coworkers alike.

Docents are great...very knowledgeable and passionate about all things Wright, Oak path and Chicago. Make sure to do online reservations so you aren’t disappointed

Orchids by Hausermann is located just north of North Ave. on Addison Rd. We were looking for a cold weather adventure with my grandkids and decided to go here to view their orchids. They do have an extensive collection. The staff was more than nice and they answered all of our questions. The grandkids loved the flowers. My 2 year old granddaughter fell in love with all orchids - purple or pink. My 4 year old grandson was really enthralled by the Venus Flytrap.

Small exhibit space in the historic Mies van de Rohe home, set in a nice park. Pleasant and helpful staff. When I was there, the exhibit was inflatable art. A few of the pieces were nice; some silly. Really enjoyed the sky view exhibit on the patio.

Fantastic pub, great for sports, great beer list and whiskey list! Very good wait staff, hardworking and attentive. Like the pony's? OTB and monitors of races! Slots here as well. But what will have you coming back is the food! Wow! Good pizza, appetizers, and some of the best wings and chili in the area! Our party raved about the sandwiches as well. Nice outdoor area with a fireplace. Highly recommend!
