St. Charles: Norton Farm

Rain, rain, go away! I wish I could give you a first-hand account of the imaginative possibilities of  the train-shaped play structure at Norton Farm in St. Charles. The big, wooden engine and cars are just right for climbing on and embarking on a pretend cross-country adventure. Unfortunately, wet weather kept my school field trip group from exploring the activities of Norton's Hallow. Fortunately, the hallow will be open every nice day through Halloween, giving us another chance to visit and explore the train, climb the hay bales, enjoy the hay ride, see the pumpkin patch, and do all the other farm and harvest-store activities.  

Norton's Hallow is $3 for adults and kids over 3 and $1 for adults over 60. Check the website for hours and further details. The farm is at 39W369 Route 64 (North Avenue) in St. Charles.
