Naperville Limousine has decent rates to/from both major Chicago airports and has always worked out well for us. They have a selection of vehicles to choose from, depending on how large your party is, and all are nice. Pick-up at the airport is easy with their toll-free "pick-up" line that you simply call after getting your luggage.
I took my ferrets to Dr. Ness years ago when he was in Westchester, and he's still a fantastic vet. He did surgery on my ferret for a hairball and was not only very skilled, but compassionate and understanding as well. I'd highly recommend visiting him at his new location in Lisle.
I have referred enough people to Dr. Huvar to put his kids through college. He has pulled all of my wisdom teeth and several more of my family. I don't know how, but you cannot even tell that you had a tooth pulled when he's done. There is NO pain. NO discomfort - nothing. You go immediately back to eating/drinking etc. He's an incredibly nice guy to boot.
I don't know what it is about dentists that causes 99.9% of them to be raving lunatics, but this one is no exception. We visited "Dr". Kos in our quest for a decent dentist, and in doing so, he filled a cavity on my husband. This was not a surface cavity, or anything special - just a regular cavity in the middle of the tooth. He did not give my husband ANY novocaine or anesthesia. NOTHING. He told my husband he wouldn't need any, and since my husband has never had a cavity prior, he didn't know any better. Needless to say, it hurt like hell! It took 6 months for the tooth to stop aching, and then, in month 7, the filling fell out! I have since learned that failing to administer novocaine is reason enough to have your license revoked.
Peck's Wildlife park is really something you must do while in the area. They have hundreds of animals, all of which you can get up close to, and even feed. You can feed black bear, deer, otters, and a gaggle of farm animals. They also have more exotic species, but all of them you can get close to. Plan to spend the whole day here!
Benjamin's is right on Highway 70, and they always have something worth stopping for. In the fall, I stop for their selection of locally grown produce, ghords, apple cider, and pumpkins. They also have a great selection of fall mums and of course, they also have cranberries and wild rice.
This store sells gifts of all kinds, all of which feature wolves. If you have a wolf lover in your family, this is the place to go. They have everything from wofl tee shirts to wolf night lights, and everything in between. Worth a look; they often have very nice sales.
The Happy Dog Barkery sells a variety of homemade dog treats, including treats for dogs on special diets. Their treats are reasonably priced and are much healthier choices than the store bought treats made from lips & feet.
I think back in the 70's La Finesse used to be swanky. Unfortunately for them, this is no longer the 70's and they might consider some renovations. There are leaky spots in the ceiling and the decor is right out of Charlie's Angels. The staff is snooty and given the atmosphere, it's no place I'd want to get my nails done at for fear of catching disease. With all this, you'd think La Finesse would charge less, but they don't. You're spending Mario Tricoci money and getting GreatClips service.
CONS: Nasty, Dingy Building
Huge selection of all things Italian! Great deli, with unbeatable prices and everything you'd expect like fresh cheeses, hundreds of kinds of olive oils and tomatoes, etc. They also have a bakery on location with dozens of confections available. Prices are downright cheap for a lot of items.
