The Chicago Casual Traveler: Kane County Fairgrounds, Saint Charles, IL (Kane County)

    Destination of the Day: Kane County Fairgrounds, Saint Charles, IL (Kane County)
    Yes, this fairground does have livestock and 4-H shows, but also has home/garden expos, dog training programs, and a well respected flea market. The public transit option is a bit more challenging than most trips so plan on combining this trip with a visit to downtown Saint Charles and the nearby Century Corners Historic Shopping District before returning to Geneva.
