The Run Down

This guide has us venturing out into the deep dark abyss, a terrifying hellscape for 20-somethings living in the city. That's right, we're headed to the Chicago suburbs. While it gets a bad rap, we've got a day trip planned that might have you feeling different by the end of it. You'll make your way to Long Grove, IL, about a 40 minute drive northwest of Chicago. It's home to a small downtown with rural farming charm. You'll walk through cobblestone sidewalks, munch on apple cider donuts, rummage through antiques, and have a beer in the woods.
