Travel Tips for Saint Charles

Cut your own X-Mas Tree

by monica71

There are several X-Mas trees farms around the area where you can go to and cut your own Christmas Tree to bring home. You usually pay around $40 for the tree (regardless of its size), so it is a bargain and it is also a fun way to spend few hours on a Saturday or a Sunday in December.
We go to Spring Bluff Nursery every year to get our own tree. They provide the saw to cut the tree you choose and they give you hay rides to the area where the trees are located. After you cut your tree, they load the tree up and you go on a nice hay ride again to find your car and to pay for the tree. They put the tree in nice bags, so you do not scratch your car and they also help you tie it up, so you can make sure it does not fall on the way back home.

Here is a link with Christmas Tree Farms in the Chicago area, organized by counties:

Biking in St Charles

by monica71

St Charles has several bike trails, but the nicest and the most well known one is The Great Western Trail. The trail is 18 miles long and it runs from St Charles to Sycamore. The trail is flat and it runs in parallel with route 64 (or North Ave) for a good 12 miles. You will pass by small streams and wetlands and you will also cross patches of native prairie. The first half of the trail provides lots of shadow, but the remaining half is pretty much open land. your bike, a hat to protect your head from the sun on the second part of the trail, and a bottle of water.

Skiing close to St Charles? Oh, yeah!!!

by monica71

If you thought that skiing was something impossible to do close to St Charles, think twice! There is an option for skiing without going too far. And the place is called Villa Olimpia. It is the closest ski area for the chicagoans, therefore it is a very popular spot with the sky lovers. What is nice about it, is that this place is close to St Charles! Villa Olivia is located in Bartlett. They have not only skiing, but also snowboarding and snowtubbing during the winter months. During the summer, the resort provides a nice 18 holes golf course for the golf enthusiast. you can bring your own equipment, or you can rent one from there.

The White Marble Temple

by monica71

This temple is in Bartlett (on Rt 59- check out their web site for directions) and it is called "Shikharbaddha Mandir", but everybody at my work place calls it "the white marble temple" since we can really not pronounce its full name. It is an Indian Hindu temple made out of white marble and limestone and it is stunning! I passed by the site the temple is built on every day, twice a day, on my way to work and back and saw this building being raised. I am just sorry that I never thought of bringing the camera with me and take some pictures while it was being raised.

The temple can be visited by everybody. The best time to go for a visit is during the week, but since not too many of us have this option, prepare for a crowded place during the weekends. It is also a good idea to go for a visit during the "Murti Darshan" hours (check out the web site for up to date information), when all the deities are taken out and a certain ritual is performed. Don't worry if you do not understand the language. There are people there that explain to you the whole ritual.

If you decide to go for a visit to the temple, make sure that you follow the rules below, out of respect to the Hindu people who are so kind and allow all of us to experience their rituals and traditions:
1. No shorts or skirts shorter than knee length. No sleeveless tops. You also need to remove your shoes when you enter the temple or the near by Cultural Center Complex. There are shoe racks and you can put your shoes there while you visit inside.

2. You need to check in your bag and your camera before entering the temple and the Cultural Center Complex. No photos and videotaping is allowed inside. You need to turn off your cell phone before entering the buildings and if you have a camera phone you need to leave it in your car.

3. You can not touch anything inside the temple. Also, no food, no drinks, no chewing gum allowed inside. Smoking is not allowed on the grounds (outside or inside) and you need to leave your cigarettes in the car.
