Now and then, especially as the weather cools, you may find yourself cooped up on a rainy day in beautiful Naperville, Illinois. If this happens to you, perhaps while snuggled up inside our cozy Naperville apartments, consider one of these relaxing activities.

Find a Good Read

Sometimes nothing is better on a rainy day than to curl up with a good book or movie. If that sparks your interest, check out the online offerings at the Naperville Public Library. The library has a variety of e-books, audiobooks, magazines, movies, TV shows, and more for downloading and streaming. There is truly entertainment for everyone to be found here. Loan periods and renewal options for each kind of content can be found on the page as well. If you need more ideas, here are a few we recommend.

Curl up with a Coffee

What could go better with a book than a cup of warm coffee, tea, or hot cocoa? If you have a sweet tooth, look no further than Le Chocolat du Bouchard, located at 1807 S Washington St. in Naperville. This French-style bistro serves up delicious pastries, hot cocoas, coffees, and chocolates (of course!). They also have a variety of soups and entrĂ©es, if you’re craving something a little more savory. Le Chocolat du Bouchard is available for carryout Tuesday through Sunday.

If you’d rather have a more casual experience, these three Naperville coffee shops provide takeout and curbside pick up options as well.

Try a New Hobby

Maybe reading or coffee just aren’t for you. Maybe you have an artistic streak, or you’ve always wanted to try a ‘wine and canvas’ type of event. Or maybe you just want to expand your interests.

If that describes you, check out Pinot’s Palette at 175 W. Jackson Ave., Suite 123 in Naperville, which offers a variety of virtual art classes. Check their FAQ page for questions and concerns regarding curbside pickup and drink orders. Pinot’s Palette provides all the art supplies you’ll need, and you don’t have to have any artistic experience. Their artists will guide you step by step through creating your masterpiece!

In lovely Naperville, there’s no shortage of fun things to do, even on a gloomy, rainy day. Find a new home here at Brookdale on the Park, and contact us to schedule a tour.
