About The Publisher:

What a wonderful place to live! Between the restaurants, shopping, culture and many family-friendly activities, Naperville, Illinois, has something for everyone! Naperville was voted the best place to live in Illinois, according to Money Magazine in 2012 and again in 2016. And the Naperville Public Library has been ranked number one in the United States each year from 1999-2010.

I am pleased and honored to be able to bring families the latest and greatest ideas and happenings in the Naperville area! I am the mother of two adult sons, six grandchildren, one of which, we  adopted as our own.  They are the reason I do this.  

I really hope you enjoy this website and that it becomes your go-to resource for family fun in our community. As a stay-at-home mom, I know how hard and time-consuming it is to find things to do as a family, even harder to find out about things to do before it is already over. So let me do the work for you.
