Looking for family friendly activities? Kids won’t believe their luck when they set their eyes on the two story mesh climber at the Children’s Discovery Museum, which features three floors of hands-on exhibits as well as a variety of classes and demonstrations. For slightly older kids (and adults), the Illinois State University Planetarium hosts science and astronomy programs on weekends for an out of this world experience.
Walk, run, cycle, roller blade, or even ski on one of the town’s many parks and trails. With 24 park areas from which to choose, you won’t have to look far to find a good spot to unwind. Or, catch a fun, interactive show or classic film at the Connie Link Amphitheatre or its counterpart, the art-deco design Normal Theatre, during colder months.

From Broadway musicals, to pop stars, comedians and ballets, Braden Auditorium maintains a consistently interesting calendar of events. For more intimate and local productions, the Prairie Fire Theatre presents high quality opera and musical theater in a comfortable setting.
