Weekend Getaways from Chicago

All Chicagoans deserve a break from the Big City every once in awhile and you don’t have to travel far to get there!

Kohler, Wisconsin

If the overcast spring weather has you itching for a relaxing getaway then head to Kohler, Wisconsin. Located 150 miles north of Chicago. A perfect destination for spa-indulgers and golfers. The hometown was originally created around Kohler Design Center, which is today a must-see luxurious factory and showroom.

Starved Rock

With beautiful waterfalls, abundant canyons, and wildlife galore, Starved Rock can be the perfect adventurous getaway. Escape the hustle and bustle by pitching a tent or renting a cabin. Starved Rock is an affordable and nearby destination that’s only a two-hour drive.

South Bend, Indiana

If you’re a college sports fan then you know South Bend, Indiana is home to Notre Dame University. You don’t have to be a Fighting Irish fan to enjoy a sunny spring day of football and tailgating! Plus, there’s shopping and dining for those less sports enthusiasts.

New York City

An easy, inexpensive flight from Chicago is New York City. Less than a two-hour flight and far less expensive than most flight destinations. Last month there were flights as low as $69! Whether your sight-seeing all afternoon or lounging in Central Park, New York City is the melting-pot mecca of the country and a guaranteed spot to find something for everyone.

The Caribbean

Although the Caribbean isn’t a drive away, a three-to-five-hour flight from Chicago will land you in Aruba, Bahamas, Puerto Rica, Cancun, and just about anywhere else in the Caribbean! Urban or rural, audacious or tranquil, luxurious or economical, there’s a Caribbean island that’s perfect for you; so, ditch the dreary spring for the Caribbean beaches and warm sunshine!
