Lilacs and Lombard have been going together for many, many years. Colonel William R. Plum had his Lilac garden and bequeathed it to Lombard after his passing in 1927. Check out the various events that are scheduled at this hometown favorite.

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!!

Picture Show

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.

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.

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.

Lynfred Winery

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 Todd C - Crystal Lake, Illinois

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.
