As winter winds down, our thoughts turn to warmer temperatures and tulips in the sun. However, spring in Romeoville can be cold and rainy. If you don’t want to be cooped up indoors, spend an afternoon at The Beller Museum, where you’ll feast your eyes on vintage cars and trucks.
Whether you’re a history buff, car guru, or believer in the “Built Ford Tough” motto, the Beller is a once in a lifetime experience! Did we mention that it’s free, as well? Although the museum appreciates donations, admission is always free for everyone. You could even make it a vintage day: After checking out The Beller Museum, head to these nearby antique stores.
Finish your day with another American classic — a hamburger and milkshake at the award-winning Hamburgerseria in Joliet.
