“Fabyan Forest Preserve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

I try to visit often. A great place to take photos. A beautiful Windmill , lighthouse , a Japanese garden and Museum. Crossing the Fox river you can see many birds and painted turtles. There are many frequent visitors so a friendly atmosphere. Bring food or drinks with you.

“Interesting museum and pretty garden!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The garden was very pretty but they need to do something about the standing water. It takes away from the beauty. The museum was interesting and the tour guide was knowledgeable.

“Another Frank Lloyd Wright museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Visit the interesting home-converted-to-museum on a Sunday afternoon and learn about the odd but wealthy Fabyan couple. Any other day and in any season walk around the gardens, take the bike trail, have a picnic, have an improtu fall foliage photo session or sled on these gorgeous grounds.
