One of the most popular things for travelers visiting our Ramada O’Hare Elk Grove Hotel to do is to stop by Woodfield Mall for some shopping and family fun. The mall, located just 10 minutes away from our O’Hare Hotel, is one of the largest in the Great Lakes Region and features over 300 specialty shops and department stores.
For guests visiting or staying in any O’Hare hotels in October, we recommend stopping by the mall to check out some of their kid-friendly activities and the deals and promotions in place to help raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many of the most popular stores in the mall including: The Walking Company, Aveda, Guess, Urban Outfitters, H & M and Crabtree & Evelyn, are all holding breast cancer support campaigns to spread awareness and hope about the disease.
If you’re looking for something fun to do to celebrate Halloween, the mall also has some exciting seasonal events taking place for younger children. On the 22nd kids who visit Woodfield Mall’s Sears location will be able to participate in a workshop where they get to build a haunted castle complete with a marshmallow catapult. The building kits for the workshop cost 5$ each and can be purchased the day of the event (which takes place in the Tools Department), however there are a limited number of kits available so make sure you get yours early! In addition, youngsters who take part get a free admission to the nearby Medieval Times restaurant (a popular tourist attraction for those visiting Elk Grove in the area) as well as a chance to win tickets for the whole family, a free admission ticket to the Museum of Science and Industry and, last but not least a free ice cream cone!
If you’re not interested in the building portion of the event you can also just stop by for some fun games, other prizes, face painting, and a chance to get your picture taken on an inflatable throne and to meet one of the valiant knights from the restaurant.
