There’s A Tiny Town In Illinois Completely Surrounded By Breathtaking Natural Beauty

Though Galena gets tons of attention for being an incredible Illinois destination (and it truly is), a nearby town has an appeal all its own. With fewer than 3,000 residents, Savanna is a charming little town surrounded by a surprising amount of natural beauty. Get your camera ready and take a trip there to be immersed in it all!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
