Outdoor Places to GoGames and Entertainment

Mini-golf is the perfect outing for all skills levels! The greater Chicagoland area is fortunate enough to have a plethora of beautiful, fun-filled mini golf options for indoor and outdoor summer fun. You’ll find courses with waterfalls, windmill, and nifty themes such as medieval or miner. My kids love playing mini-golf on a beautiful day. Most of the time I don’t even let them keep score and just have fun!

Some of the locations have specific courses designed for littles, while others were created with the entire family in mind. We like to pack a water bottle, sunscreen, and bug spray. This article will serve as your guide to mini golf — Chicago and suburban options — so get ready your bookmark folders ready because this one is packed!
