Do you feel that? Yes, it’s finally Autumn, which means that it’s time for sweater weather, warm drinks, and long walks in the park? Need some ideas for the best parks near your apartment? Just outside Chicago, The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County offers plenty of spaces to spend time in the beautiful outdoors.

If you have yet to check out Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve, then it might be time to take a trip out to Darien, Illinois. Around 30-45 minutes of driving will expose you to 2,492 acres of prairies, savannas, and shaded, oak-maple woodlands surrounding the Argonne National Laboratory. Overlooking the Des Plaines River, we can’t think of a better way to spend the weekend.
