Kids activities in Elgin

I recently took my sons to Santa’s village amusement and waterpark.

Despite the name Santa, it is a really good summer activity for the kids.

I love taking my boys there to ride on all the rides and hit the water park. It gets tough in the summer coming up with things to do. In Elgin, Illinois there isn’t much for kids. So I try to find fun activities. We go to the Elgin zoo one day and do mini golfing the next. We see a movie and maybe hit the park to throw a frisbee. Santa’s village amusement park is the highlight of the summer. I like that they are completely entertained while I just stand there watching them. Now that I have given birth I have found that I can’t go on rides anymore. I can’t ride roller coasters, merry go rounds or bumper cars. My poor husband is the one stuck going with them all the time. He then tags me back. I have to go to all the water park stuff and stay wet for hours on end. It isn’t a blast for adults, but the children certainly love it. I really enjoy that the park is such a short drive away from our Elgin home. We also have great weather in Illinois most of the year. We have endless opportunities to go and have superior weather. Our summer season is quite long but not brutally hot. Nobody is going to be overheated or sunburned. But, nobody is going to be cold during our summer either.
