Family Staycation at Chicago Family Palooza!

Now is about the time of year that my kids get a little stir crazy; I need new ways to keep my family busy. The initial excitement about snow in Chicago is over, and we are left with a bunch of melty slush that is only good for ruining your favorite shoes. Winter, I’m so over you!

Last year, I brought my incredibly energetic kids to Family Palooza in St. Charles at the Pheasant Run Resort. My kids were 3.5 and 1, and yes, there was something to keep even those ages entertained! Family Palooza is held February 27th and 28th in a 51,000 sq. foot event facility, and includes hundreds of activities for the whole family.

  • 220 ft. Indoor Zip-line

  • Exotic Animal Show
  • Magicians
  • Stilt Walkers
