Where to Go Around Your Naperville Corporate Apartment
Not all the magic of the Chicago area is contained in the city: the Chicago suburbs have plenty of treasures of their own. If you’re staying at Lincoln at the Parks or the Iroquois Club in Naperville, your corporate apartment is surrounded by amazing Best Local spots waiting to be discovered by you. So, what’s the hold-up? Step outside your comfy suite and into the superb, suburban Naperville.
Get lost inside Best Local favorite Anderson’s Bookshop (123 W. Jefferson Ave.) in Naperville. This family-owned business has been a Naperville gem since its 1875 inception. The store, which offers book clubs, fairs, signings and more, is owned by the great-great grandchildren of the store’s founder. You can even pick up titles by local authors. It’s just an 8-minute drive from Lincoln at the Parks.
Treat your need for a sweet treat at Naper Nuts & Sweets (10 W. Jefferson Ave.). This Best Local spot is another long-time, family-owned biz. Here, you can pick up popcorn, fudge, gummies, chocolate, nuts and more. Try the store’s specialty, the Cock Robin English Toffee, made by a local Naperville family. This sweets shop is nearby Anderson’s, just a 7-minute drive from your Lincoln at the Parks suite.
Take a few steps from Naper Nuts & Sweets, and stroll into Bella Caley (20 W. Jefferson Ave.) to do some shopping. This locally owned Best Local shop is barely a year old, but it offers plenty of trendy treasures for sophisticated shoppers. Get the latest fashions, from stylish casual wear to formal ensembles. Beyond clothing, you can find great accessories and home décor items at Bella Caley too.
End a long day of strolling the streets of Naperville at Crosstown Pub (909 E Ogden Ave.). The food here isn’t just standard bar grub—the wings at this Best Local bar and grill were featured on the Travel Channel as well as Chicago’s Best. Unlike most standard pubs, Crosstown offers healthy and creative menu items (try the pumpkin spice rum wings!), craft beers and wine. It’s the perfect spot to kick back and wind down, just a 7-minute drive from Lincoln at the Parks.
