Chicago - Minneapolis - St. Paul - Winterset, IA

Jump to last reply

I finally have my destination decided for June after a few false starts. I am now going to be arriving in Chicago, mid-June and renting a car. I will have about 10 days to tour around. Have already been to Chicago, so I'm going to head straight for Minneapolis as I have always wanted to visit the area. Would also like to visit the Covered Bridges in Madison County, so that is why I will return to Chicago via there.

I'm flying in and out of Chicago as it means I have a direct flight and don't have to bother changing planes and the airfare is cheaper. Not sure whether I want to spend time in Chicago at the end of the trip but I figure it will depend on how things go along the way.

I'm looking for suggestions for places to visit anywhere along my route. I'm a 40 year single woman who is interesting in nature/parks, shopping and general sightseeing.

Many thanks, Laura
