Naper Settlement hosted an extension of the Chicago Christkindlmarket. This was a great idea and offered the perfect setting for the Market. My friend and I had a great time and especially enjoyed the light displays along the main path that circles the Settlement.

This is a fun place to spend an afternoon with family. There often are scheduled activities. We enjoy the Christmas market and Oktoberfest. I have been too scared to go to the Halloween festivities but the decorations look amazing. There is ample parking nearby.

Great fun for all ages. Great local history with lots of interesting educational opportunities for the kids. A true representation of early Naperville. Naper Settlement has many fun events such as Naper Nights and a fantastic Christmas Market.

I believe so. The only problem would be if she wanted to see inside a few of the buildings that have second floors and a flight of stairs up to them. You can always call ahead and check.
