For us amateur photographers I have taken my best pictures at Bird Haven Greenhouse Conservatory on Gougar Road-on the border of New Lenox. Exquisite flowers and waterfalls all year round. Don’t forget to walk the beautiful nature trails adjoining this greenhouse!  It only takes 10 minutes to get to Brook Hills from here…..right down SW Highway!

We frequent the AMC Theatres hidden behind the Jewel on Route 30. They now have the Dream Loungers !
