Rather than getting on a plane and flying away for spring break, consider hopping in the car and staying local! Our town may not have beaches, but it’s loaded with family fun activities, parks and outdoor recreation, scenic views, delicious restaurants and plenty of places to grab a pina colada or cold beverage. Plus, you can spend more time making memories with your family than stressing about crowds and all the headaches of traveling, while also finding great rates at stellar hotels!
Planning for a stay in St. Charles is easier than ever before. Check out our itineraries, such as the family fun itinerary (found above or in the link) for great ideas on what you can do to not only have a fun and memorable Spring Break, but also support local, St. Charles businesses! Make sure to check the hours on any businesses you are interested in going to on the itineraries. We also have some ideas below on other activities you can do to have fun on your Spring Break in St. Charles!
Also check out activities around town as there’s always something going on. The St. Charles Park District is always holding fun activities or check out the St. Charles History Museum for fun, interesting St. Charles knowledge.
Don’t forget some of our local attractions that are always fun to visit: catch some rays and head outside for an adventure at Norris Woods Forest Preserve for unrivaled views of the river or head over to Leroy Oakes Forest Preserve or the Great Western Trail for a picnic and walk in the woods! For an activity everyone can enjoy, head over to St. Charles Bowl for some fun bowling at this awesome bowling alley.
Rather than trying to solve a board puzzle, challenge yourselves to escaping from an escape room at IPanic Escape Room! Their challenges are designed for kids 14+ but they do allow under ages under 10 with a private experience.
Why try to watch a beautiful sunset when you can paint one with your family? Check out all the cool open studio sessions with All Things Art Studio to not only have a fun activity, but have something you can take home from your spring break trip to St. Charles! (Open studios are subject to availability so be sure to check to see if there are spots available!)
