NAPERVILLE—

Where Chicago - - NAVIGATE -

For a glimpse into what life was like on the Illi­nois prairie, visit Naperville’s Naper Set­tle­ment Museum Vil­lage, an au­then­tic re­con­struc­tion of a 19th-cen­tury prairie com­mu­nity. The 13-acre site con­tains 18 his­toric homes, busi­nesses and public build­ings, plus au­then­ti­cally cos­tumed vil­lagers who have sights to show and sto­ries to tell. To reach it, take the Eisen­hower Ex­press­way to I-88 and look for the Naperville exit. Fol­low the brown-and-white signs to 523 S. Web­ster Ave. Call 630-420-6010 for more in­for­ma­tion. Lo­cated close to the museum vil­lage is one of the most beau­ti­ful spots in Illi­nois: the Naperville River­walk. Stroll through nearly 2 miles of wind­ing brick paths along the DuPage River. Call 630.355.4141 for in­for­ma­tion about River­walk events.
