There is a great halfway stop from our home to Chicago. It is the Fair Oaks Farms. I had been hearing about it for a long time from Dan who raved about the double chocolate milk shakes they serve there.
Fair Oaks Farms is a great place for kids of all ages to visit. According to their website, Fair Oaks Farms is an escape to the country with acres of great outdoor fun, food and learning where you can explore family farms and reconnect with nature, animals and our planet.
While we were there we saw groups of students on field trips.
Cows are everywhere...
We stopped on our way to Chicago and back. And yes, we got our milkshakes (both times). Dan has good taste and I can see why he raved about them for so long. They were worth the extra time on the treadmill machine.
Have you heard about this fun and educational place?
I think I may be requesting additional trips to Chicago.
