10BEST Says

Parks: 25 miles west of Chicago, you'll find this majestic, 500-acre public park. Colonel Robert R. McCormick left the land to be used "for the recreation, instruction and welfare of the people of the state of Illinois" and he would beam with pride to see how his wish has been fulfilled. On the grounds of the park are the McCormick Museum, the First Division Museum, two championship-caliber golf courses, Fareways Restaurant and approximately 15 acres of manicured gardens. If the family is in need of a peaceful break and a little quality time, an afternoon spent at Cantigny is just what the doctor ordered. The park is open weekends in February and the museum has extended summer hours.
