FOR THE
Interacting with animals, riding historic trains,
discovering natural play, and solving puzzles-
we have activities for the entire family from
toddlers to teens. Check out our top ten
recommendations.
GET A KISS
FROM A REINDEER
There's nothing more magical
than meeting a reindeer up close
as the holidays arrive. At Hardy's
Reindeer Ranch, you'll meet these
gentle creatures, who'll give you
a kiss when you give them a
graham cracker.

PLAY IN A NATURAL PARK
Throughout the pandemic, we rediscovered the outdoors.
Natural playgrounds at Homer Lake Forest Preserve and
Anita Purves Nature Center provide creative play spaces
with natural materials used for climbing, jumping,
and splashing.

EXOTIC ANIMALS
What's more exotic than a
reindeer? How about a Blue
Wildebeest? At Aikman Wildlife
Adventures, you can find over 200
rescued animals at this wildlife
haven. Go on their drive-thru
adventure, where animals will
approach you to be fed, or walk
through areas of the park to see
small animals and predators.
LEARN ABOUT
THE STARS
Discover the mysteries of the
universe at the William M.
Staerkel Planetarium. Kids and
adults alike can learn about the
stars through various events and
films for all ages.

RADIO CONTROLLED FUN
Head out to Eli Field in Monticello where their airstrip and
pilot stations are ready to welcome RC plane enthusiasts.
A brand-new scale dirt track is perfect for racing those
RC cars. Have a drone? Check out their races and practice
grounds.
RIDE THE RAILS
At the Monticello Railway Museum, kids will be in awe of
the vintage passenger and freight trains, clamoring for
a ride. Hop on for a short trip to the Courthouse Square,
or plan ahead for the Polar Express, with tickets on sale
every summer.

engaging events and activities all year round. From kids
concerts to crafts to technology, the public libraries
throughout the area are always accessible.
