South Elgin's exciting recreation activities are plentiful year round. Take the children on an educational and rewarding trip to the Fox River Trolley Museum. There, they can experience the sights and sounds of the early 1900's railroad industry and even take a ride on an authentic 1908 trolley car along the Fox River. The South Elgin Riverfest held every August is another must see attraction. There are plenty of games, rides, and other amusements. Not to mention excellent hometown cooking! Don't forget the Fox Valley Oktoberfest. This is a great local celebration of German-style food, drink, and dance. And if that isn't enough, why not visit neighboring downtown Elgin. Spend a night on the town dining, dancing, and even trying your luck at the Grand Victoria Riverboat Casino.
