The quaint valley of St. Charles, Illinois offers a perfect Midwestern escape for families and couples, alike. Unlike its urban counterpart, tourists travel miles to experience the scenic RV and tent campgrounds, local museums and theaters, the Cosley Zoo, spectacular golfing, riverboat cruises, hands-on science museums and hiking adventures across wetlands, creeks and green fields. Just an hour west of Chicago, St. Charles is a quick drive to everything urban life offers.

Gaming fans crowd around thousands of slots, poker games, table and casino action. Try your luck on reel and video slots, blackjack, craps, three-card and Caribbean Stud poker, roulette and blackjack throughout the night and well into the early morning hours.

Then relive the simplicity of yesteryear at Blackberry Farm’s Pioneer Village where spinning, weaving, pottery and blacksmithing demonstrations are held on a regular basis. Visit the one-room schoolhouse, historic agricultural gardens and picnic areas near peaceful ponds, a winding stream and a stunning lake. Local wineries like Fox Valley and Lynfred produce award-winning wines, host tastings, grape stomps and Oktoberfest celebrations complete with pig roasts, barrel races and cork tossing.

Golf fans are sure to make the grade at one of the many St. Charles golf courses, putting greens, driving or practice ranges. Bring the entire family along to Campton Hills Park Disc Golf Course, tee up and fling a light-hearted, competitive round using Frisbee-type discs. There’s also plenty of laughter to be found at popular indoor and outdoor miniature golf courses.

Camp under the stars at family-oriented grounds complete with swimming pools, playgrounds, stocked fish ponds, natural lakes, paddle and row boats. RV campers will appreciate convenient amenities offered by many parks including electrical hookups and water systems.
