Are you “staycationing” in Chicagoland this summer and in need of day-out ideas? Groupon’s got some great offers today for fun area attractions at great discounts — particularly if you’re in the far northwest suburbs:
- $5 Admissions to the Illinois Railway Museum in Union, Illinois (reg. $10!) — this is the largest railway museum in the country, with miles of its own track on property so you can ride many kinds of vintage trains and trolleys. My sons just love going here!
- Glo-Bowl Fun Center in Marengo, Illinois has some great packages for families: It’s $29 for two hours of bowling, shoes, pizza and a pitcher of soda for four people. Or, double the fun with two hours of bowling on two lanes with shoes, two pizzas and two pitchers of pop for $55!
- Pump it Up indoor inflatables park in Crystal Lake, Illinois has 10-jump passes for $40 – that’s just $4 per open jump session! We like to arrive when they open, and the kids can jump and play all day long! They’ve got free wifi too, so it’s one of my favorite “remote office” places to work while the kids have fun.
