West of Chicago Illinois, is the beautiful suburb of Schaumburg. It is a fantastic little place to visit away from the hustle and bustle of big city life. Radisson has recently opened a beautiful new hotel in Schaumburg that is perfect for a family vacation. What is there for a family to do while visiting Schaumburg, Il? Glad you asked!
Radisson Hotel Schaumburg offers complimentary shuttle service within a 5 mile radius of the hotel. There is a lot to see and do within those 5 miles! Here are a few things you can experience while visiting Schaumburg, IL with your family.
My first time visiting Schaumburg was to shop at IKEA. Who doesn't love IKEA? Their products are stylish, modern, durable, and very reasonably priced. I am not going to lie, I have spent hours walking every inch of every floor. You never know what you are going to find that you MUST have! IKEA is a 10 minute drive from Radisson Hotel Schaumburg.
Near IKEA is my favorite mall in the entire world, Woodfield Mall. Just a few stores that you don't want to miss are Build-A-Bear Workshop, Coach, The Disney Store, Garrett Popcorn Store (trust me on this one), Godiva, Gymboree, Janie and Jack, Pandora, and Yankee Candle. Stop for lunch at The Rainforest Cafe - the kids will love it!
Your little builders will lose their minds when you visit the Legoland Discovery Center, which is also just 10 minutes from the Radisson Hotel Schaumburg. Here they can experience 9 Lego themed attractions including a 4-D movie and a laser ride! They can also learn how Legos are made.
HUZZAH! Transport back to medieval times and visit Medieval Times! Savor this utensil-free four course meal. Good luck getting the kids to use forks again! Enjoy a jousting tournament with real knights, weapons, and horses. This will be a family night you will all enjoy and your kids will talk about it for weeks! All this is just 5 minutes away from the Radisson Hotel Schaumburg.
At the end of your busy day, retreat back to the modern and stylish decor of the new Radisson Hotel Schaumburg. The kids will love splashing around the indoor pool while you catch up with emails using the complimentary high speed wi-fi. Or take a few moments to relax in the whirlpool. Then jump on in the pool with the kids and have some fun! You also don't have to skip your workout, as you have access to their well-equipped fitness center. PHEW! You won't miss cardio day. Before bed, cozy up to the fire pit on the outdoor patio and count the stars together.
The Radisson Hotel Schaumburg is also only a 20 minute ride to O'Hare International Airport. Shuttles are also available to take you to and from O'Hare making your arrival and departure simple, and stress-free. To arrange your shuttle, simply contact the hotel at least 24 hours in advance. A hotel that picks me up for free? Where do I sign up?
