Naperville Trolley for Kids

This summer in Naperville kids can say goodbye to the school bus and hello to the trolley.

On Friday mornings families can head to downtown Naperville and hop on a trolley for a quick tour of the town.

This is the first year Naperville Trolley & Tours is offering the child friendly rides in addition to their usual historic tours.

“During my one hour historic tour of Naperville I talk the entire time and sometimes children don’t want to be quiet and adults don’t want to hear the children, you know chit chatting so this was created to fill a need for our friends in the Naperville and visitor friends,” said Annette Wehrli, also known as “the Trolley Chick” for Naperville Trolley & Tours.

The tours pass by Naper Settlement, Centennial Beach, the VFW and the train station, making for a great ride full of history and fun: continuing in the tradition of the trolley that’s been around for over 20 years

“My father started the company in 1995 and I purchased it from him two years ago and we have a fleet of 4 trolleys and everything is more fun on the Naperville trolley,” said Wehrli.

Tickets cost 7 dollars and can be purchased online at
