Spring break is right around the corner – are you prepared? Whether you’re planning a spring vacation or staycation, you’ll need activities for the whole family to enjoy. Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up our top family-friendly to-dos in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs, so get ready to unplug and go play!
Go on a Hike
Grab your walking stick and fill your backpack up with plenty of fluids and trail mix and hit the trails! Explore the 18 miles of trails around the Chicago lakefront, or take a short drive out to Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve in Darien and hike any of the 11 miles of marked trails to experience the Rocky Glen waterfall or Sawmill Creek Bluff Overlook. Either way, the kids will be tired out by the end of the day and ready for bed, giving you time to relax and enjoy some me-time spent on your porch or snuggled on the sofa.
Play at the Park
Pack a picnic and head out for a day at the park! Soak up some of the spring sunshine at one of the many parks Burr Ridge and Chicagoland have to offer. Don’t forget to apply plenty of sunscreen! If it rains, there are also tons of indoor play options such as Ball Factory Playground or Urban Air Trampoline Park to keep the little ones active and entertained for hours.
Visit a Children’s Museum
With so many options to choose from, you will be able to museum-it-up for a day in Burr Ridge, Chicago, and the other surrounding suburbs. Choose hands-on, interactive options like DuPage Children’s Museum, or step back in time and explore science and history through the ages at Field Museum in Chicago.
Book A Workshop or Paint Party at the henn house
Tap into your creative side this spring with one of our many DIY workshops or slime parties!
