Fun-filled vacations in Naperville

Travelers flock to Naperville for its parks, museums and historic attractions in northern Illinois. The city is a suburb of bustling Chicago, so endless cultural sites, athletic events, high-end shopping and dining opportunities are just a few miles away on the shores of Lake Michigan. But Naperville boasts its own waterfront charms, too, along the winding DuPage River. Once you've picked out your ideal Naperville vacation rental, it's off to the local swimming beach for friendly games of volleyball on the shore and family picnics in the park, or to the historic district for walking tours and the chance to discover 100s of fascinating old buildings.

Riverfront attractions in Naperville

The DuPage River runs through the center of Naperville, inviting visitors for waterside strolls along its banks. The Naperville Riverwalk offers nearly 2 miles of brick paths, beautified by fountains, covered bridges, historic-looking light posts and public sculptures and artworks along the way. Bring the family on a warm summer afternoon for a picnic in the park, followed by a paddleboat ride on Quarry Lake. There are cafes and attractions around the Riverwalk Park area that you'll want to check out, too, including a swimming beach with family-friendly amenities and a tower you can climb for views over the city.

Step back in time in Naperville

For a look back at the heritage of the area, there are 2 spots in the city that are filled with historic structures. The Naperville Historic District spans several blocks of the old part of town, where 100s of buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Elsewhere, be sure to check out the interactive museum experience at Naper Settlement, a 12-acre park where historic structures have been relocated to recreate a pioneer settlement, complete with a meeting house, blacksmith shop, schoolhouse and more. Some of the buildings have exhibits and hands-on activities for kids, while costumed characters wander the grounds.

Naperville in the sun and snow

Naperville experiences all 4 seasons, with summers that average in the 80s and winters that bring blankets of snow and freezing temperatures. If you plan to spend time outdoors at the local parks or strolling along the riverfront, visits in late spring through early fall are generally warm enough to enjoy the sunshine. Evenings typically cool off quite a bit, so if you plan a visit for any season but summer, why not look for a Naperville vacation rental with a fireplace for cozy nights in, especially during the chilly winter months?
