Summertime is upon us, and for many individuals and families that means it’s time to pack up the car and head out for a trip or two. If you live in or around the Chicago area, check out some of the top places to trek out for an adventure. While you’re at it, check out some popular new Chevy vehicles at Sunrise Chevy that would be great for your next road trip.
Top Road Tripping Spots in the Midwest
Here’s a look at just a few of the fun spots you can get to for a weekend road trip outside of the Chicago area:
- Door County: Located on a lovely peninsula in northeastern Wisconsin, Door County is filled with small towns like Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, and Baileys Harbor. Known for great shopping, fish boils, and some of the best sunsets around, Door County is about 4.5 hours north of Chicago. If you’re up for a camp, there’s nowhere like Peninsula State Park.
- Galena: For a longer weekend getaway, Galena is a charming small town full of opportunities for adventure. You can browse fun shops along cobblestone streets, tour historic mansions, and go skiing in the winter.
- Lake Geneva: In an hour and a half, you could be sitting at a fun bar and restaurant, sipping on a cocktail and enjoying a look out at the lake. Located just 83 miles northwest of Chicago, Lake Geneva is one of the easiest and fastest ways to get out of town.
- Ottawa: 90 miles southwest of Chicago, Ottawa houses the entrance to Starved Rock State Park where the flatness of Illinois gives away to beautiful bluffs and waterfalls. Ottawa also has a surprisingly fun nightlife scene in addition to its outdoor attractions.
Great Chevy Road Trip Cars
There are a lot of different Chevy models that would be fun to take on a road trip. Here are just a few:
- Chevrolet Sonic: The smaller Sonic is great for a college road trip, particularly in its hatchback form. Fold the rear seat down for storage, save lots of money on gas, and enjoy affordable access to your favorite entertainment features.
- Chevrolet Equinox: This crossover SUV with all-wheel drive gives you the ability to do some serious trekking when you want to, while its generous dimensions make for lots of room for storage and passengers.
- Chevrolet Corvette: It might not be the ideal pick in terms of storage, but take the Corvette out for a weekend trip and we’re confident you won’t regret it.
