Naperville is a unique community, capturing the charm of a small town but just a short drive from the bustling streets of downtown Chicago. It is an ideal destination for family vacations or a romantic weekend getaway for two, as the community offers many delightful attractions.

Naperville Riverwalk

Naperville is home to an gorgeous Riverwalk, which was built to commemorate the city’s 150th birthday in 1981. The Riverwalk features beautifully manicured landscaping featuring local flowers and foliage, covered bridges and brick-paved paths that take pedestrians through downtown and along the DuPage River.

Naper Settlement

As the oldest settlement in DuPage County, Naperville traces a vibrant history back to Joseph Naper's arrival in 1831. To travel back in time for an afternoon, visit the Naper Settlement where costumed guides will take you through the 12-acre village of restored historic buildings.

DuPage Children’s Museum

Young travelers will love the hands-on exhibits and unique displays at the DuPage Children’s Museum. This vibrant museum is conveniently located a short walk away from the Naperville Metra Station, making it a leading children’s attraction in the Midwest.

Naperville Century Walk

For a glimpse at Naperville history in a more modern setting, travel the streets of downtown to see “Art with a Story” through a series of mosaics, sculptures, murals and sidewalk features. Photo opportunities are around every corner, along with excellent local spots for shopping or grabbing lunch.
