When we first got here, I purchased a month-long public transit card and an inexpensive Junior Card for Thomas. Little kids are free. We have used these passes almost constantly. On Tuesday, we took a two hour trip around the top of Lake Zurich on this shuttle boat.
Here is a bit of the shoreline at one of the stops.
There are tables to sit at inside, but the boys had more fun on the breezy, chilly deck.
I was very glad no one fell overboard!
