Default What did you do during liberty?

My husband should graduate in August, and from what I have read, he will only really get Friday for liberty since he will go to A school in Pensacola. I believe I can also meet him at the airport Saturday. For those that had the shorter liberty, what did you do during your time with your family (aside from the obvious )? I'm not familiar with the area so I want to do my research ahead of time. Thanks!!

I spent a lot of weeknights on liberty in Lake Forest... it's a very quaint, upscale town nearby. You can get there in 5min on the Metra, which stops right outside the RTC gate, and there are several restaurant options for dinner. Market House was my favorite.
