Selfie yourself at some of Chicago Northwest’s most intriguing spots for photos to blast out to the world! And don’t forget to tag #chicagonw on all your social channels.
1. Arlington International Racecourse*
Snap a shot with the photo-loving Thoroughbreds, the Kardashians of the horse world (a photo from behind will attest to this) at gorgeous Arlington Park. These horses just can’t seem to get enough attention. Send your selfies out to all your friends, but watch out for the photo-bombing jockeys!
2. Itasca Train Depot Museum
Here’s another idea with a caboose theme for a memorable photo for a train-lover. This charming depot features the original 1873 station complete with a 1939 bright orange Milwaukee Road Rib-side caboose. Your friends don’t know what a rib-side caboose is? Climb aboard for a photo to send out to your uninformed pals.
3. LEGOLAND Discovery Center*
We can almost guarantee that you’ve never taken a photo with a giraffe, in a lifestyle mall, in suburban Chicago. Head over to The Streets of Woodfield for your close-up with Le-la, the life-size LEGO Giraffe just waiting to greet you at the door. Head inside with the kids for many more unique photos waiting around every corner!
4. Lynfred Winery*
Add to your vast collection of selfies with a wine glass in your hand. Sit on the beautiful Lynfred Winery veranda or in the cozy gazebo and snap away all afternoon. The fabulous wine selections are worth the photos and so much fun in the process!
5. Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament*
Has anyone ever told you to stop acting like a princess? Well, here’s your chance to prove that you really are special. Stand outside the magnificent Medieval Times Castle, snap a photo, and send it out to confirm your royal status. Enter the castle for some shots of live jousting and falconry.
