Here Are 12 Spots In Illinois You Must Explore This Winter

Those dropping temps, winds, and snowfall definitely encourage us to stay in and hibernate in winter. But it doesn’t have to be that way! We should get bundled up, head outside, and explore some of our favorite Illinois places “winter style.” Here are the 12 spots you should hit up this winter.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

If you head out to any of these places and happen to have your camera, don’t forget to get a picture and post it on the Only in Illinois Facebook page.
