“One Track Trips” by ABC’s Roz Varon, is a series of day trips taking the Metra from Chicago to different towns along the tracks. On one of her most recent Trips, Just Off The Tracks acted as her guide to discover Arlington Heights. We spent the day visiting the Metropolis Performing Arts Center and some unique shops in Downtown Arlington Heights.
What a better way to spend a morning or afternoon, then to shop your local market. Purchase the freshest ingredients available. Select from organic, locally sustainable produce, eggs, cheeses, humanely grown and raised meats, and more. Many of the markets have live entertainment, children’s activities, cooking classes, demonstrations and more!
One of the surest signs of Summer is the return of Racing to Arlington Park Race Track. The track is open and running full speed, so hop on the Metra Northwest Line and be delivered right to their door. A day at the Track is always a fun and exciting way to spend a day with friends & family.
This years fireworks along the Northwest Line start on July 2nd with the last town, Fox River Grove on the 12th. So get out and enjoy the show. Many of the towns have celebrations, festivals and parades as well.
You don’t have to be Irish to enjoy this pub crawl. We have included five Irish pubs in five different towns. Pick where you want to stop and end, then go out and have some ‘craic.” (an Irish term for fun or good time). If you try all five we would like to hear about your favorites.
In celebration of Halloween, three different theaters will be featuring Classic Hollywood Horror Films. The only thing not scary, is the price! Ticket prices are reduced at each of the theaters. Best of all, the theaters are within easy walking distance of the train.
Get out and enjoy the last days of good weather – while enjoying some great restaurants – these all have outdoor seating, some curbside, some on beautiful patios, some with views of the Fox River.
