Sightseeing
Although private, the library and surrounding grounds are open to the public, and this place is beautiful. There's a Labyrinth on the property, as well as Gardens and a Pond. A walk through Roger's Grove followed by a picnic on the surrounding grounds is a delightful way to spend the afternoon in the Spring, Summer, or Autumn Season.

Adams Park is not only a historic landmark, but it's a lovely little park with a delightful water fountain and plenty of park benches. Nestled between the local public library and downtown Wheaton, it's ideally located.

This library rivals Wheaton's in that it hosts its own coffee bar and sandwhich/snack shop. It's also adjacent to a branch of the Illinois Prairie Path, so you can exercise both your body and your brain!

You can get lost in this place! Not really, but as the website indicates, "the 595-acre St. James Farm Forest Preserve in Warrenville contains more than 100 acres of woodlands, prairies and wetlands," so be prepared to see some spectacular sights while getting plenty of exercise. Of noteworthy consideration are the following: • The Horse & Hound Cemetery: https://www.waymarking.com/waymarks/WMBZMV_Horse_Hound_Cemetery_St_James_Farm_Warrenville_IL • Sculpture & Artwork • The Wagon Exhibit • Fishing, Walking/Running, & Biking https://www.dupageforest.org/places-to-go/st-james-farm

Talk about vistas! Are you a disc-golfer? If not, you can still have lots of fun while getting plenty of exercise, for Kress Creek hosts a path for walking, jogging, or running. If you are a disc-golfer, this is an enjoyable and challenging 18-hole course, but beware: you may spend more time looking for lost discs than actually throwing them!

If the flora and fauna of my residence's bucolic property aren't beautiful enough, then take a hike! Head east down the street for a jaunt towards Churchill Park, where the trail meanders through the woods, over a stream, and on a bridge over a pond where Heron, Red-winged blackbirds, and snapping turtles abound.

If you're a disc-golfer, this 9-hole course is just the thing if you're looking for a lunch hour quickie or you simply want to practice your short game. If you've never disc-golfed, Horizon is the perfect place to learn: none of its nine par 3 holes is so long that you need to bring anything more than a putter and a mid-range, fairway driver. I love getting in a good game, while simultaneously walking CoCo!
