Fox River Grove Things to Do
Ski Jumping Madness and Music
The Norge Ski Club is less than a mile from my house (I can actually see the jump from my front yard.) I have not done it myself but I know they throw music parties there and have annual ski jump festivals. It looks pretty dang high to me.Related to:

July 4th Fireworks and Venetian Night
You sit on the "sledding hill" in the Picnic Grove park and watch the fireworks over the Fox River. Venetian Night - just like the big version in Chicago- boats are amply decorated with beautiful lights and fireworks.Related to:

Brunch Cafe: Great for breakfast
Finally, a good place for breakfast or lunch. Very busy on the week-ends. I have only had their breakfasts and the omelettes are great as are the crepes. Great place for the locals to hang out. Fairly good size place and worth the wait for a nice Sunday breakfast or lunch.
Favorite Dish: I really like the savory crepes.
Fox River Grove Warnings and Dangers
It can get cold here and a train once...
I have yet to experience it but I have been told it gets cold here - really cold. So bring a coat if you plan on coming in the fall/winter/spring.
Be careful crossing the tracks since a metra train once hit a school bus.

Go to Chicago!
Take the Metra rail and go to Chicago. Unless you like horses and families and boutique shopping and visiting the post office, take the train and go have some real fun.Related to:
