Tucked inside the village of Rosemont, home to Loews Chicago O’Hare, are an abundance of activities, not including flying in and out of one of the world’s busiest airports. In Rosemont you can shop ‘til you drop, parade around with a beer and lederhosen or if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even skydive (safely indoors I might add).
Bub City is a BBQ restaurant with a wide assortment of whiskeys as well as live country music. A favorite of mine at Bub City is their $10 build-your-own Bloody Mary bar that they offer every weekend; not only is it outfitted with the standard Bloody Mary accoutrements, oysters, shrimp and a ton more are also options to dress up your drink!
Looking to try skydiving without actually jumping out of a perfectly good plane? iFly offers indoor skydiving with all the fun and weightless feeling of traditional skydiving, minus the parachute and small chance of danger.
Big Ten Museum
Not into the traditional version of museums that are scattered across the Chicagoland area? Then check out the Big Ten Conference Museum! Chock full of sports memorabilia and facts dating back to 1896, the museum also features 13 interactive exhibits.
If you’re a big fan of beer but making it over to Oktoberfest in Germany may not be in your future plans, then you’ll love Hofbrauhaus, Chicago’s first and only German beer hall. Slip on some lederhosen, close your eyes and imagine you’re in the original and legendary 400 year-old Hofbrauhaus in Munich!
20 lanes of bowling, 2 bars, billiard tables and an expansive food menu make up King’s Rosemont, a great place to spend an entire day if you so choose. I can’t promise you’ll bowl any strikes, but I can promise you’ll have fun.
With two levels and over 130 designer outlets, Fashion Outlets of Chicago is sure to have something for everyone you’re shopping for. Located only steps from Loews Chicago O’Hare, you won’t have to lug your arm full of shopping bags far after a day at this mall is complete.
