The 10 Best Things to Do in Roselle, United States

October 24, 2017 Natalie Tallman

Roselle is a suburb of Chicago and is a village located in both DuPage County and Cook in Illinois, United States. Located in the northeastern part of the state, Roselle was first incorporated in 1922 and is a bedroom community, with residents generally commuting to Chicago or nearby suburbs for their jobs. As a result, the early rural atmosphere of the community has been lost over the past 30 years. As of the 2010 census, the village's population was 22,763. Roselle is a western suburb of Chicago and is part of the Chicago metropolitan area.

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.

The greater Chicago area has many "Forest Preserves." This one is readily accessible to highways and major roads and on a rainy, dreary, November day was a great spot of fall foliage. The drive through the park passes several parking lots and rest areas. There were picnic tables throughout. What a resource for people nearby. We would come back if in the area again.

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!

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!

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.

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.

The staff at Bloomingdale Golf Club are always interested in doing a great job for the outings. We have been using Bloomingdale Golf Club for about eleven years and have found everyone to be tremendously helpful, efficient and friendly. They do a great job in keeping the players moving, even though we had extra foursomes on the longer holes. Dinner afterwards is always a treat and the pig and the ribs are especially top-notch. The course is always nicely groomed and there are practice areas for driving and putting. Great job, Bloomingdale!

Visited today with my daughter wife and granddaughters age 5 and 2. Experience was as reported in the reviews: great fun and age appropriate! Cost was $18 for 2 kids with military discount. They loved the merry go round, slide, boats, and train. Workers were so nice and patient with little kids. Plus there were almost no crowds so they let them repeat rides multiple times. Overall a great experience!

Woodfield Mall is working hard to lure customers away from their internet shopping and back into the mall.

Check out the women's lounge near the Cheesecake Factory. It is done in sophisticated black and white. It has some very nice we-care-about-our-customers touches. There are comfortable couches at the entrance You will find a large shelf against the back wall of every stall, where you can safely place your purse and packages. There are sit-down vanity tables with three-way mirrors.

I found a charging station for my phone and you can borrow a cable from customer service.

There's a bitcoin ATM, free wi-fi, and that giant mall centerpiece -- Garrett's popcorn.

The most exciting news is the food court opening this summer in the upper level Sears wing. The first tenants to be announced are Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Charleys Philly Steaks, Maoz Falafel and Grill, Suki Hana, and Wok A Holic.

There's no Garrett's Popcorn or Maoz falafel at my computer....so Woodfield, here I come.
