Best Fall Day Trip from Northern Illinois is This Wisconsin Destination
If you've ever traveled to this Wisconsin town, you know there really is no bad season to visit, but Fall in Wisconsin is extra beautiful. Time for some trip planning.
What Makes a Great Road Trip Destination
When you're thinking about getting in the car and heading in some direction for adventure, what do you most want to be waiting for you at your destination? For me, it's some natural beauty to explore, preferably a town with a lake or river and a walking or biking path. Lots of food choices and shops for some retail fun are also high on the list.
Best Day Trips From Northern Illinois
Named one of the most beautiful towns in America, Condé Nast used the words below to describe this town.
over-the-top American charm
proximity to some of the loveliest landscapes on earth
year-round resort-like atmosphere and attractions
Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
Treksplorer just dubbed this gorgeous southern Wisconsin lake town as one of the best Day Trips to take from Chicago and I'm in complete agreement (plus I live in Rockford, so the drive is much shorter).
Lake Geneva has the most amazing 21-mile lakeshore walking path and lots of beach and water activities.
Many great places to find something delicious to eat and this place is a must if you like beer.
If you're thinking that this trip should probably be an overnighter, consider this peaceful rental in the woods for your weekend getaway.
If you love the Lake Geneva area and so do a bunch of your friends, maybe renting this custom barn for a big multi-family vacation, is a good plan.
