Best Fall Getaways in the Midwest

fall getaways in the Midwest

If you need a break but don’t want to take time off from work, have no fear! There are plenty of awesome weekend getaways right here around Illinois that are perfect for a little fall trip.

Here’s a few of the best fall getaways in the Midwest:

Elkhart Lake, WI

Just about an hour north of Milwaukee sits Elkhart Lake, a spot of year-round natural beauty, but in the fall it’s really something to see. Whatever you’re looking for, be it going to the spa, hiking, golfing, shopping, and more, there’s something for you at Elkhart Lake.

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore

Let Lake Michigan soothe you this season at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. There’s so much to do here, it’s truly impossible to list. Try horseback riding. Go bird-watching. Fish for a day. Plan a picnic. Let nature relax you at Indiana Dunes this fall!

Mackinac, MI

This portion of Northern Michigan is packed with tourists during the summer, but in the fall things become more relaxed at Mackinac Island. Take a classic carriage tour of the island, or do-it-yourself with a bike rental. Whatever your taste, there’s something fun at Mackinac for you!

These are just some of the best fall getaways in the Midwest. There’s plenty to do in the autumn, and all within a few hours from home.
