Keep the munchkins moving this summer!  Give the babysitter some time off and load up the car, DuPage County has much to offer the whole family this season. 

From infants to age 10, the Hamill Family Zoo feeds the need to get a “feel” for the animals, literally.  You won’t find ‘Do Not Tap the Glass’ signs here, as children are encouraged to interact with the live animals, build animal homes, search for animal tracks, and play all day.  Don’t worry mom, the lions and tigers are not invited to this part of zoo. 

Trying to get your too-cool-teen to participate in some family time?  Try Whirlyball in Lombard!  This fun game combines lacrosse, hockey and basketball with bumper cars in an indoor facility with sports bar, pool tables, and 17 flat screen TVs.

Dad, never let a challenge go unmet!  Show your kids what you’ve got at the Daddy Olympics, hosted by the Coral Cove Water Park in Carol Stream on Fathers Day, June 20th from noon to 5pm.  If you’re feeling victorious (or in need of redemption), Coyote Crossing is offering free Mini Golf for all fathers.
Need to keep the kids busy while you sit this one out?  The DuPage Children’s Museum offers mini-camps for ages 7-10, designed for hands-on exploration to keep the wheels turning.  Sessions are Monday through Thursday from 9 am to noon, starting June 21st.


Mark a d ate on the calendar between June 30 and July 4th for the 29th Annual Eyes to the Skies Festival in Lisle featuring a children’s area, petting zoo, and fun for all ages.


Before class is back in session, don’t miss the DuPage County Fair, July 21st-25th, with children’s attractions each day including Kid Buck’s Game Show, Buttons the Clown, Balsters Magic Show, and more.

If you don't yet live in DuPage County and are considering a relocation, contact us for more information.  Elmhurst and its surrounding cities have a lot to offer, and we'd be happy to introduce you to a community you'll truly enjoy being a part of.
