A couple of weekends ago, we benefited from an unseasonably warm February afternoon and capitalized by taking a walk around Long Grove. Long Grove is a quaint town in the Chicago suburbs containing a charming cache of historic buildings dating back to the 1800's. Honestly, it had been quite some time since we had explored Long Grove so we were curious what we would find.
|Long Grove Confectionery for a sweet treat!|
|A temptation for everyone!|
|There is always treasure to be found at Viking Treasures.|
|A day I can visit Paddy's on the Square is always lucky.|
|Need a sauce for dinner inspiration?|
|A place to swirl and relax.|
Also new to Long Grove is Broken Earth Winery. The inside is pretty impressive and seems to be a nice place to lounge while enjoying wine. A swanky bar, nice comfy chairs and even a fireplace makes it a nice place to chill. The gift shop is fun to peruse! I was happy to see some local items for sale and hope they do expand the selection of locally made items in the future! Broken Earth Winery is owned by longtime residents who also have a winery in California. A nice addition for a fun evening or afternoon out.
