Ever want to escape your block or neighborhood and explore what Illinois has to offer? Maybe take in a local baseball game (that isn’t the Cubs or White Sox)?

Anyone that’s lived or passed through the Mount Prospect, Wheeling, Arlington Heights area for any length of time has most likely taken a trip to Randhurst, one of the first air conditioned shopping centers.
