Yes, real reindeer and other fun holiday activities. You can catch the reindeer (and probably Santa, too) the first weekend of December at The Glen.
When it comes to shopping, nothing beats the Chicago area.
Not only is the downtown brimming with some of the best shopping in the country, but the Chicago suburbs are also filled with malls and outlet stores.
But what about unique and interesting finds? These are the best niche and unique places to shop in the Chicago area according to residents.
If you love vintage and second-hand shops, you’re in luck because there are some gems in Aurora, Glenview, Northbrook, Arlington Heights, West Chicago, Naperville, and other Chicago suburbs.
Boutique Repeats & Gifts in Aurora
This consignment shop has plenty of name brand handbags, dresses, jewelry, and other treasures. The great thing about this store is that it mostly stocks designer items.
Beat Street in Arlington Heights
This unique store in Arlington Heights has a retro feel. Beat Street is filled with interesting toys, gifts, goodie bags, and knickknacks. The old-school piggy banks are absolutely adorable.
Elegance Underneath in Naperville
Once you stop in Elegance Underneath near our Glenmuir apartments in Naperville, you’ll never shop for lingerie at a department store ever again.

Old Time Pottery in West Chicago
Don’t be fooled by the name: it’s not a pottery store. Think of Hobby Lobby but without the arts and crafts section. You can find some really good stuff here when you’re ready to start a new home décor project on a rainy afternoon.
Stella315 in Arlington Heights
Although the clothing here is amazing, the jewelry is what really stands out. Stella315 in Arlington Heights is the perfect place to find interesting items at surprisingly affordable prices.
Akira is a women’s clothing store in Aurora. It’s a great place to shop when you’re fed up with the malls and department stores. Keep in mind that the employees can get a little persuasive.
People drive from out of town to shop at this Arlington Heights thrift store because of the unique treasures you can find. Although the prices are a little higher than other thrift shops, the quality of the products definitely makes up for it. Plus, the profits support local schools.
Karisma Boutique in Naperville
Set aside some time when you plan a trip to Karisma because you might get lost in here for a few hours. Not only is the staff super friendly, but they offer clothing and accessories in a wide variety of styles.
Crate & Barrel Outlet
We couldn’t pass up mentioning this Crate & Barrel outlet shop in Naperville for furniture and accessories you love at discounted prices.
The prices are a little high at bevello in Naperville but you definitely get what you pay for – it’s high-end clothing. The staff here works extremely hard to make sure you look your very best by the time you leave the store.
American Science & Surplus
“Wow” is all we can say about this West Chicago store: it has something for people of all ages. Electronics surplus supplies, books, toys, army surplus supplies, science experiments – you name it, they’ve got it.
Three Twelve Tudor
This local boutique in Glencoe is a lesser known spot for trendy outfits at affordable and mid-range prices. The soft cozy sweaters and friendly staff are really what makes Three Twelve Tudor special.
Turn the Tables in Northbrook
Turn the Tables is a new shop in Northbrook and Glencoe that sells unique brands from local merchants. From Indian tunics to chic printed t-shirts this place has some great finds.
Fire & Ice in Glenview
The owners, Hannah and Eric, are super polite and extremely helpful. This is another great place to shop when you just aren’t in the mood for malls or big department stores. They have casual clothes for all ages so it’s perfect for a Saturday afternoon out from your Tapestry apartment.
Chicago is known for its food.
But you don’t need to venture downtown for amazing fare. In fact, you have a broad range of options throughout Chicago’s suburbs.
Don’t worry: no one will blame you for ordering take-out from one of the upscale places if you want to hang out in your luxury apartment while chowing down.
Prices are ranked out of four.
Al Bawadi Grill in Bridgeview $$
This Bridgeview restaurant is a reflection of the area’s dense Arab population. You have several options to choose from for your shawarma, kafta, falafel, or tabbouleh fix. Al Bawadi, however, is the absolute best. Just don’t forget the tea or Arabic coffee to wash down your baklava.
Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria in Naperville $$
We all know Chicago makes the best pizza. When the craving hits, head out the door for a fantastic deep dish from this Naperville joint. They can get busy so make sure you order early – but the quality never disappoints.
Bob Chinn’s Crab House in Northbrook $$$
If you’re in the mood for seafood, Bob Chinn’s Crab House is where it’s at. The best part, however, are the garlic rolls – you can’t get enough of these. This is a place you won’t want to skip desert: the passion cheese cake is simply incredible.
Hokkaido Ramen Santouka in Arlington Heights $$
One of the best things about suburban Chicago is the wide selection of high-quality Asian food choices. Santouka is the perfect choice when you’re looking for some warm ramen to warm up on a cold day in your Stonebridge apartment.
White Fence Farms $$
In the mood for fast-food (or just fried chicken)? Skip KFC and head to one of White Fence Farm’s locations. The fritters are amazing and the original location in Romeoville has a petting zoo. Yes, the chicken is locally raised.
Pomegranate Restaurant $$
Grab a bite at this hidden gem during a long day of shopping. They have a wide variety of choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This might just turn into your favorite take-out spot living in Aurora of Summerfield. Pomegranate has everything including traditional sandwiches, Greek delights, and high-quality home-style favorites.
Blueberry Hill Breakfast Café in Aurora $
When you wake up craving a hearty breakfast, head to Blueberry Hill Breakfast Café in Aurora. The portions are huge. Just don’t be surprised if you have to wait for a table on the weekends.
Two Brothers Roundhouse $$
Ready for a laid-back night out? You’ll love the atmosphere at Two Brothers in Aurora. Not only are the craft beers amazing, but everything on the menu from appetizers to desert will leave you more than satisfied. (We recommend the brussels sprouts and soft pretzels.)
Al Chulo in West Chicago $$
Al Chulo is a Latin-fusion restaurant that’s all about quality over quantity. The plates are served tapas style so don’t go here if you’re starving. The flavors here, however, will not leave you disappointed. Al Chulo’s fish tacos are definitely the best in town.
Hawthorne’s Backyard Bar and Grill $$
Not only is the food great, but this is an excellent place for hanging out and watching a game with some friends in West Chicago. The patio and outdoor area are perfect for volleyball, games, or just socializing with some drinks. West Chicago residents love the wings and crab legs. Meat lovers won’t want to miss their prime rib buffet.
Wildfire in Glenview $$$
Wildfire has a few locations throughout suburban and urban Chicago. This Glenview location isn’t far from our Tapestry location and is ideal when you’re in the mood for steak or just a high quality homecooked meal.
Pro Samgyupsal in Northbrook $$
Don’t go anywhere else for Korean food – this is the place. Not only is the food amazing, but it’s an experience: you get to cook the food on your own grill.
Although downtown Chicago is known for its booming nightlife, you still have some solid options in the suburbs.
Naperville offers the most options, but there are hidden gems near Aurora, Arlington Heights, West Chicago, Northbrook, and Glenview, too.
1.Unwind at Flight Wine Bar in Glenview
This place knows how to pair wine. Flight understands that people work different schedules – that’s why they’re open until 1 a.m. all week long. And the food? Amazing. The hummus is great but the cheese selection is definitely one of our favorite things about this place.
The best part about Flight is that it’s not far from our Glenmuir apartments so paying for a rideshare home won’t cost you a fortune.
2.World Renowned Chicago Blues at Rosa’s Lounge
Rosa’s is inside the Chicago city limits but it’s on the outskirts so you won’t have to contend with as much traffic. We couldn’t pass up mentioning this gem for blues and jazz.
Its snug location also means this place doesn’t get overcrowded like the jazz clubs downtown. You won’t regret making the trip to Rosa’s for a night out – and it probably won’t be your last.
3.Break the Winter Blues at Hala Kahiki Polynesian Bar
This tiki bar in River Grove is perfect for busting the winter blues with some Polynesian drinks and a tropical vibe. Their Mai tai is spot-on and you can’t pass up the Hawaiian specialties like taro chips.
Hala Kahiki gets packed on the weekends so it’s also a great place to meet some friends or maybe that special someone in a low-key atmosphere.
4.Smart Bar Has All the Best DJs
Smart Bar is another location inside the city but it’s such a local favorite we had to add it to the list. The crowd is super diverse in terms of style, age, energy, and personality so you never know what kind of interesting people you’ll meet. This nightclub opened in 1982 and has showcased world renowned DJs ever since. It’s the perfect place for dancing or just checking out new acts. Frankie Knuckles, The Black Madonna, and Derrick Carter have all held residency here.
5.Try Something Different at Kush Hookah Lounge Near Glenview
If you don’t drink, suburban Chicago still has you covered. Kush Hookah Lounge takes reservations so it’s perfect for a night out with some friends. The laid-back atmosphere and free Wi-Fi is perfect for playing some games or working on a project with your friends.
6.Travel Back in Time at Frankie’s Blue Room in Naperville
Frankie’s Blue Room in Naperville is a really cool place that feels like traveling back in time – in a good way. The dancing is on-point and the entertainment is unique. The food is standard bar food (but good) and the speakeasy style will keep you coming back.
7.Enjoy the Cheese and Delights Tannin’s Wine Bar and Boutique
If you’re looking for something low-key, head to Tannin’s in Elmhurst. They have a few appetizers but you can also order food for delivery from nearby restaurants. Tannin’s is a great place for wine connoisseurs and newbies alike. The vibe is laid back but the live music, trivia nights, and helpful owner, Mike, offer just enough excitement.
8.Sick of Aurora? Head to Lantern in Naperville
If you live in Aurora or West Chicago, you’re better off heading to Naperville for your nightlife fix. Lantern is an excellent choice when you’re looking for some good food and drinks to watch the game or just hang out with friends late at night. This bar has everything you need for killing a few hours: beer, darts, popcorn, and friendly staff.
9.Relax at Exhale Hookah Lounge During the Week
This is one of the best hookah lounges in Chicago’s suburbs. Exhale is an ideal place to go if you’re in the mood for a break from traditional bars and just want to chill out. On the weekends, the DJ kicks the atmosphere up a notch with some tunes.
10.House of Music & Entertainment in Arlington Heights Has it All
The best part about this joint in Arlington Heights is that it’s open late: until 3 a.m. most nights. You never know what you’ll get here and that’s a good thing. Some nights they host art displays and open mics on others. The atmosphere is casual and the food is surprisingly good for an entertainment bar.
You can’t travel far in suburban Chicago without running into a forest or nature preserve.
With small bodies of water, dog parks, and plenty of trails, suburban Chicago has plenty of activities to keep you busy every season.
These trails and preserves in Arlington Heights, Glenview, Northbrook, Naperville, Aurora, and West Chicago are well maintained so they’re an ideal way for you and your dog to spend a day off.

Chipilly Woods in Northbrook
These Northbrook woods provide a 1.7-mile loop trail. It’s not too long, so it’s perfect for an afternoon or morning hike. Dogs are more than welcome as long as they stay on a leash. Be careful in the spring months: this trail can get a little muddy. The best time to visit Chipilly in Northbrook is the fall – we think you’ll love the colors.
Green Valley Forest Preserve and Dog Park Near Naperville
This huge forest preserve isn’t far from our Glenmuir apartments in Naperville. The Green Valley Forest Preserve and dog park has nearly 1,500 acres of land for you and your dog to explore. Our favorite thing about Green Valley is the view. Open May through October, the scenic overlook provides the BEST photo-ops of the stunning Chicago skyline.
West Chicago Prairie Forest Preserve
This West Chicago preserve has over 350 acres for you to explore. Bikes and horses aren’t allowed due to the delicate ecosystem but dogs on a short leash are okay. The trails are perfect for walking on a spring day because they wind through the serene West Chicago Prairie.

This forest preserve in Aurora used to be called “Sugar Grove” in Kane County’s early years. The multipurpose trail is ideal for just about any activity – especially biking. Aurora West is just one more of suburban Chicago’s excellent off-leash dog parks.
Downtown Chicago has plenty of museums and cultural activities to keep you busy for days.
But what about outside the city? Yes.
Moser Tower: A Piece of Modern Naperville History
Locals know this landmark as the “Millennium Carillon.” The 16-story tower commemorates the turn of the millennium and Naperville community members organized funds to build it – it’s an integral part of the local culture for this reason.
Moser Tower is perfect for getting some exercise on your day off when you’re sitting in your Glenmuir apartment looking for something to do. The view of the Chicago skyline from the top of the tower is definitely the best around.
Fabyan Windmill and Japanese Gardens
This is an authentic Dutch windmill located in the Kane County Forest Preserve – yes, it still works. The structure’s history dates back to 1850 when it was used as a grinding mill. In winter, this is THE place to go for sledding.
You may have seen this local icon on a U.S. postage stamp due to its designation as a historic landmark. The structure is made from cypress wood beams, black walnut, and wood dowels. You might be surprised to find out there were no nails used in its construction. After you hang out at the windmill, head over to the Japanese tea gardens in the Fabyan Villa.

This facility also houses the Meyer Ballroom and Grand Gallery: Aurora favorites for special events like weddings. With the amazing Venetian architecture, it’s easy to see why.

Robert R. McCormick House in West Chicago
This West Chicago landmark was the home of Chicago Tribune founder Robert R. McCormick. (Here it’s called “the world’s greatest newspaper.”) Robert R. McCormick, aka. “the Colonel” led a vibrant life with interests ranging from journalism to fox hunting and he served in World War I before launching the local newspaper.

There’s plenty of interesting things to do year-round in Naperville, Aurora, West Chicago, Arlington Heights, Glenview, Northbrook, and several other Chicago suburbs. Here’s just a few of our favorite ongoing attractions.
Soak up the Sun at Centennial Beach in Naperville
If you live in our Glenmuir apartments, you’ll definitely want to buy a seasonal membership to Centennial Beach in Naperville. This isn’t your ordinary swimming pool or lake: it’s a historic quarry.

Everything here is interactive and the play tubes climb two-and-a-half stories. Between the engineering stations, climbing walls, and water-wall painting, there’s something for everyone.
Keep Things Low-Key at Kids Art & Café Near Arlington Heights
There’s nothing quite like the Kids Art & Café near Arlington Heights. For one thing, this place has really great food which is often hard to come by in kid activity centers.
What we like best about this Schaumburg joint near Arlington Heights though is that they have separate child and adult activities. Plus, there’s a café for you to hang out and enjoy some coffee while the kids play with crafts.
Northbrook Sports Center Pool is Perfect for Rainy Days

This is probably the best zoo in Chicagoland: it’s huge and has a hands-on children’s zoo. The sleepover safari is an exciting experience for groups. Brookfield Zoo plans tons of events for holidays and different seasons so there’s always something happening.
Play Cops-and-Robbers at Hidden Key Escapes in Naperville
Activity centers are fun but families often split up and do their own thing. Escape rooms are a great alternative because you have to work together to solve the problems.
