What Is The Best Season In Illinois?

I believe fall is the best season in Illinois. The weather is perfect with hoodie-wearing temperatures. The leaves are changing colors. Kids go back to school. There's plenty of football to enjoy. Don't forget about all the fall-related activities.

What's The Best Halloween Attraction During The Fall In Illinois?

I know a lot of people would say haunted houses. I agree they are a good time but not for everyone. I recommend a pumpkin patch and corn maze for fun for the whole family. Luckily, many times those farms usually have both. Illinois has several to visit during October.
