The Spooky Small Town In Illinois That Could Be Straight Out Of Stranger Things

From the secret lab to the small-town stores and homes, there is a place in Illinois that is similar to the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, and you should definitely plan a visit.
Adventure through the woods or shop at some local stores in this village to immerse yourself in this 1980s horror flick world. Keep scrolling for proof that the town of Lemont might be just as strange as the one on the show.
