#Chicago spots you must visit with the families

Spring Break was a busy one for us. For some guaranteed fun for the entire family, we decided to revisit a couple of our favorites.

Medieval Times – Schaumburg, IL

Besides the beautiful pageantry of gallant horses and knights, my husband and I especially enjoy the feast that comes along with the ticket. Be prepared to go barbaric because there will be no silverware to be found. To start each one gets served with 2 mug refills of soda, a bowl of tomato bisque and bread followed by  a whole half of a roasted chicken with a barbeque rib and roasted potatoes on the side. For dessert is an apple puff pastry and coffee. The kids were so busy cheering our knight that we ended up bagging their meals home with us.

Comment below for a chance to win 4 tickets for your family! Tell us why would you like to try out Medieval Times. Contest ends on April 30th! Winner will be contacted via email directly.

  Sky High Sports – Naperville, IL

The kids’ pent-up energies were guaranteed to be let loose at Sky High Sports. They bounced off trampolines on floor, walls, and landing on foam pits! The kids left happy and tired.

Museum of Science & Industry – Chicago, IL

The kids can never have enough of the Science Storms! The museum also have a new exhibit called Animal Inside Out. That will be a visit for the next day. Below is a vine video from an earlier visit.

    We would love to go because my husband and I have never gone together and I know it would be an awesome time! We have been talking about it for years, but haven’t gone yet! Thanks for the chance! 🙂

    Sadly, it’s one Chicago area attraction that we have not been to! Every time we drive by, my son always asks to go. Would be nice to finally stop 🙂 Thanks for the chance! (He recently went to sky high sports and thougjt it was the best thing in the world!)

    We would love to go because Mister Man was just there on Friday for a friend’s birthday party and had a BLAST… but now everyone else is jealous that they weren’t there. And one day… ONE day, we will be in the section where the knight we’re cheering for wins it all!

    I would love the chance to go because I have never been there before and think my family would really enjoy it! Thanks for the opportunity!

    I’d love to go with my family because we’ve never gone before and it sounds like fun!
