Fun Ways to Break Out of Your Rut


Unique Activities to do in Kane County Illinois

Are your tired of the “same old, same old” when it comes to planning outings with your friends or family? Then it’s time to try something new. Instead of booking a reservation at the usual restaurant or going to a movie, check out some of these unique activities that have popped up recently right in your backyard in Kane and DuPage counties.

Axe Throwing

Axe, meet target. Get ready for an adrenaline rush when you hurl axes with all your might at targets in the safe confines of an axe throwing lane. After a training session that lasts about 10 to 15 minutes, your group will compete against each other in a variety of challenges. Size doesn’t matter. Anyone can be good at axe throwing. It’s all in mastering the right form. Try Splinters Axe Throwing in St. Charles, the largest axe throwing facility in the Midwest, or Axeplostion in Lombard.

Indoor Wall Climbing

Challenge your body to a whole new adventure. Indoor wall climbing facilities have set-ups for people of all ages and abilities, no experience necessary. It’s a great physical and mental workout. Check out Vertical Endeavors in Glendale Heights.

Ninja Warriors

Do you enjoy watching American Ninja Warriors on TV? A number of venues have opened recently where you can put your skills to the test without the fear of falling in water in front of millions. Where else can you tackle obstacles such as rope walls, swinging rings and sloped walls. In Naperville, try Ultimate Ninjas or head over to Windy City Ninjas in Elmhurst.

Get Creative

Looking for an activity that is a little less strenuous? How about painting and drinking? Let your creative side out in an instructor-led session that leads your through all the steps to produce your own masterpiece. Sipping on wine during the fun is encouraged! Bottle & Bottega in Glen Ellyn hosts public and private painting parties. Or, head over to Board & Brush Creative Studio in Downers Grove to for a variety of workshops to make DIY doormats and decorative signs.

To add some extra zing to your outing, book car service with WSL to get you to and from the sites. That way everyone can focus on having fun and no one has to handle driving duties except the professional WSL chauffeurs.
