Looking for an interesting day trip this summer? There is a great place to visit and it is less than 10 miles from MVCC. Argonne National Laboratory is managed by the University of Chicago and has a history of being on the cutting edge of many scientific discoveries (including work on the Manhattan Project). The laboratory offers guided tours of the facility. Visit this historical site and take time to walk through the adjoining forests to visit the waterfall and remnants of the Chicago Park District nursery. Also check out the view of the Des Plaines Valley.
