Horse Drawn Open Sleigh Rides - OH What Fun!

OH WHAT FUN! What could be better then enjoying a horse drawn open sleigh ride this Christmas season! I love the old world charm of it, and it's a great photo opportunity to boot! And thanks to the Forest Preserve of DuPage County, Naperville residents do not have to look too far from home. St. James Farm in Warrenville is offering 20-minute sleigh rides this winter. They will be offered Wednesday ‒ Saturday, from Dec. 21 ‒ Jan. 7 at 2, 2:30 and 3pm. Please note that tickets are NOT refundable in the event that there is no snow because they will use their wagon instead of the sleigh. Call 630-580-7025 or visit
