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!

We've been here during the summer and now the winter (for the Winter Illumination). Both times we've loved it. I was taken back by the cost to walk through a small part of the arboretum during the winter but after doing it, it was well worth the cost. The lights are beautiful. We went as a group and the adults and kids enjoyed it (even though it was close to 0 degrees). There are warming stations and fire pits along the way so you can warm up with a drink (adult drinks too) or by the fire.

Tivoli Theatre Downers Grove

Reviewed By Barb L - Chicago, Illinois

Such a fun experience and great value to visit the Tivoli. The price is half of the traditional theaters...as are the refreshments (and drinks and popcorn have free refills). The seats are comfortable, the screen is exceptionally large, and the venue itself has so much to admire and holds a lot of people. There is also an organ player if you go on Friday or Saturday nights. Hands down, our favorite movie theater!!

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.

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!!

Willowbrook Wildlife Center

Reviewed By JJRiann - Chicago, Illinois

We accidentally stumbled upon this center while on a weekend trip. I am so glad that we did! This place is incredible! In the main welcome center, They showcase birds and reptiles that have been injured. There are placards on each cage with information on the injury and where the animal was located. Outside, there are several other cages with injured fox, owls, raccoons, vultures, bobcats, etc... I was amazed to see an American bald eagle. The enclosures were all impeccably clean and you can tell that these animals are loved. Behind the cages, there is a 1/2 mile trail that winds you around the perimeter and offers views that are breathtaking. You have to keep in mind that this is not a zoo. These animals are being rehabbed and some will never be able to go back into nature. I think the services offered at this facility are commendable. I will definitely be back again soon.

Orchids by Hausermann

Reviewed By Allen21096 - Chicago, Illinois

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.
