Stuff to Do Nearby

There's a ton of great attractions just a couple of miles away from the wedding site, and it's easy to make a weekend of it without even venturing into Chicago proper.

  • The Prairie Crossing Community (where the barn is located) has over 10 miles of trails, a pond with a community beach, an organic farm and an on-site farmers' market.

  • The Liberty Prairie Reserve (connected to Prairie Crossing) has 3,200 acres of protected land and trails perfect for walking, biking and horseback riding. BYOH.

  • Six Flags Great America (14 minutes away) will be having its annual fright fest, which basically means you get to ride all the rides (our recommendation: the Superman) and get to see some folks wearing scary makeup, too.

  • The Jelly Belly Center (a half-hour away) is just over the state line in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. Highly recommended if you wonder how jelly beans are made.
