If you live in the state of Illinois or have travel plans that involve Illinois, don’t miss visiting Schaumburg. Schaumburg is situated about 25 odd miles away from the northwest Chicago loop. It’s home to Motorola Solutions’ World Headquarters, one of the two only IKEA stores in Illinois and the 11th largest mall in the United States, the Woodfield Mall.  (Younger children, upto the age of 7, will enjoy balloons, slides and the play area in the indoor playground, Yu Kids Island, that’s located inside the mall.)

But what else can families do in the area?
