Do you seek adventure?  

Whether it's thrill-seeking adventure like skydiving and ziplining or family-based adventure like waterparks and bowling alleys, we created Adventure Outside Chicago just for you.  365 days a year, there is adventure waiting for you in the towns of the Heritage Corridor - all within a short drive from Chicago.  In fact, you could even stay in a hotel or at a campground and extend your adventure even longer.

This new subsite is going to feature blog articles, events, and attractions for you to explore and start planning.  Go hiking or skiing at the State Parks of Ottawa, including Starved Rock State Park.  Go kayaking at The Forge: Lemont Quarries and Kayak Morris.  Go speeding down waterslides at Raging Waves, Illinois' Largest Waterpark.  We even cover Axe Throwing.

Get inspired, get planning, and getting going to Adventure Outside Chicago.
