If you’re staying close to home for this year’s family vacation, don’t despair. Naperville has a whole host of possibilities to fit your needs.
Let’s start with Naperville’s famous Riverwalk, a gorgeous walking path encompassing the hustle and bustle of downtown, but also quieter areas along the DuPage River where you can appreciate the beauty of nature via a leisurely stroll captured in unique photos.
Take your staycation to the next level with a stay at one of Naperville’s 18 hotels. Try the Hotel Indigo Naperville Riverwalk, a boutique hotel with walking access to downtown Naperville or the Hotel Arista at CityGate Centre, a AAA Four Diamond luxury hotel. For an option with an indoor pool, try the Chicago Marriot Naperville, Courtyard by Marriot, Embassy Suites, Fairfield Inn and Suites, or Holiday Inn Express.
If you have kids in tow, go explore at the DuPage Children’s Museum or Naper Settlement to mix in some educational fun.
For something a little more active, head to the Springbrook Prairie Forest Preserve, DuPage River Park or Knoch Knolls Park for a bike ride or hike. These adventures can be as long or short as you want, and pair perfectly with a picnic or a trip to any of our over 300 restaurants for lunch or dinner.
The golfers in your group will love a trip to Topgolf Naperville, with climate-controlled bays to get in plenty of swings, food and fun. Or head outside to one of Naperville’s six beautiful golf courses, like Naperbrook Golf Course, a public “links-style” par 72 challenge.
Naperville offers plenty of boutique shopping, creative endeavors, and salon/spa relaxation. Downtown also hosts a diverse collection of murals, mosaics and sculptures known as Century Walk. Find a wide range of restaurants, coffee shops, cocktail and dessert offerings to fit any taste. Plus, the free Municipal parking allows you maximum flexibility to explore. Whether your style is impromptu or planning ahead, Naperville has all the elements to make it feel like a vacation day.
