Though I've lived north of Chicago all my life, I never made it down to Naperville to explore their well-known Riverwalk and main street shopping district until May 2004. I'm disappointed that I hadn't discovered this great town earlier. Its downtown district is a beautiful place, with a great mix of quality chain stores alongside quaint one-of-a-kind shops...and a fabulous selection of restaurants. And best of all, there's a beautiful paved Riverwalk that runs alongside the river that cuts through downtown.
If you're coming to Chicago, I think Naperville is definitely worth a day trip--it is serviced by a direct Amtrak train service from downtown Chicago, so transportation is no problem.
See my tips below for a glimpse of Naperville in spring!
- Pros:Plenty to explore, lots to eat, easy to navigate on foot
- Cons:A long jaunt from my home north of Chicago--and a bit expensive
- In a nutshell:A great day out!
My sister's lunch selection--a lovely salad with red onions, specialty cheeses, roasted red peppers, kalamata olives,... more travel advice
You'd never guess on parts of the Riverwalk that you're right in the middle of one of Chicago's biggest suburbs! more travel advice
