Chicago - Recommend good day trip outside the city or over-nighter?

Jump to last reply

HI All,
I'll be in Chicago in July (yikes, I know, it was neck and neck, either July or August, both H-O-T I understand).

Hoping to get some great insights from the experts... :)

Kindly recommended day trip outside Chicago, or even, if it's more than a few hours away, staying overnight in another interesting area.

Usually when I visit a city I like to see if there's anything else outside of it that's interesting to do. I enjoy nature/beautiful scenery, other charming towns, etc.

I've been asking around and all anyone recommends is Frank Lloyd Wright's house. Is there anything else? :) (not that interested in that house, sorry)

Anything from a few hours out, to even staying overnight somewhere else, is what I'm interested in. Preferably via public transport.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to share. Appreciate your recommendations.
