It’s great to live in the growing and active town of Plainfield. We love the friendly, small town atmosphere combined with all the great dining, shopping, and entertainment options. The winter weather might keep families indoors, but with so many nearby businesses and venues, your family will be entertained, regardless of the weather!
We decided to round up a few of our favorite indoor family activities and venues in Plainfield. Check them out below:
