A Metra train from Geneva would be your best bet. Schedule and fares - metrarail.com/metra/…

If you are looking for outdoor activities, you might consider biking along the Fox River Trail, which goes through St. Charles. It's very scenic. We rented bikes from a shop in nearby Batavia two years ago, but there may be bike rental places in St. Charles.
