Fun for Everyone in Lake Forest

If you’re looking for fun activities for your entire household, we have a few recommendations that will pique the interest of many. Start the new year with fun things to do with your roommates at home or near your Lake Forest apartment.

The DuPage Art League

Art appeals to everyone, and there is no need to leave your home to find it. The DuPage Art League offers not only free showings of their galleries but free educational materials to pair with them. This way, those with little to no knowledge about art can learn and discover something new. 

Furthermore, the gallery overs virtual art classes for all skill levels, as well as an online shop. If you happen to know someone passionate about art, buying a gift card for a professional lesson may be the perfect gift for the upcoming holiday season. 

Deer Grove Forest Preserve

After a long day of fun, consider taking a nice, relaxing walk through Deer Grove. The preserve houses nearly 2,000 acres of diverse habitat from wetlands to forests. The preserve is open year-round from sunrise to sunset and offers numerous trails for every type of hiker. They encourage all visitors to follow safe distancing protocols and all visitors and staff are required to wear face coverings at all times. The facility has also developed a news page with updated safety regulations and advice here

For true tree huggers, there are also many ways to volunteer to help protect the animals and plants living within the area. If your household loves nature, volunteering may become a new way to spend quality time together, while giving back to the community.
