The Next Day

Wake up refreshed after a great night of events! Grab some breakfast from Willy and Grace’s Diner. We would very much recommend their skillets and pancakes! Delicious! Once you are all done with breakfast, head on over and take a stroll down the Fox River Trail. Or, if walking isn’t quite what you were looking to do for an after-breakfast activity- make sure to check out all of the local small businesses! From thrifting to hand-crafted arts, check them out here.

Now you are getting a little bit hungry again… make your way to the wonderful Udon Nomi located right on Grove Ave! There you can enjoy ramen, udon, rice bowls, and some delicious treats!

And that is your mini weekend in Elgin! Remember to take a look at our other blogs for fantastic ways to enjoy your time in the #ElginArea!
