5 Things to Do Before Summer Ends
Visit an Outdoor Water Park
Arguably the best Summer activity is going to the pool! It’s fun for all ages and there are many to choose from in the area!
Attend an Outdoor Music Performance
There are a lot of venues that frequently host musical guests, but here are some places where you can enjoy the music outside.
Mockingbird Bar + Garden
Mockingbird offers an espresso bar, cocktail lounge, food that makes you feel good, + fresh cicchetti (small plates) prepared from our wood burning oven.
Plank Road Tap Room
“After traveling the country in search of great beers, we hatched a plan to bring them all right back here, to our home in Elgin. We’ve become a destination for locals and visitors alike.”
Rosie O’Hare’s Public House
“At Rosie’s you’ll feel right at home – whether you stop by to quench your thirst with our vast selection of beers and spirits, or dine on our authentic pub grub.”
Old Republic Kitchen + Bar
“Old Republic is an American Kitchen+Bar featuring specialties from across the country. We’re proud to create everything in house (including smoking our own meats) and combining them with our favorite cocktails and drafts.”
“We’re a neighborhood pub, serving great food and cold beers!”
Spotted Fox Ale House
This sports bar offers a variety of great food, drinks and craft beer selection.
Visit a Splash Pad
Splash pads are another amenity you can only find in the summer. What’s great about a splash pad visit is that there is also other play equipment and open fields at these parks. Pack a picnic and you’re ready for a full day of play!
Go on a Golf Outing
Enjoy a trip to the golf course before the sun starts going down early! Book a tee time and select a course below.
Take a Hike
Going for a hike in summer is a great way to get into nature. You can see lush foliage and animals that are out and about before cold chill comes rolling in.
