Local Vacation Sites Make The Top 7 Places To Visit This Summer!

Iuliia Sokolovska

If you are looking for a vacation spot, but don’t want to stray too far from home, you might want to check out these nearby hotspots that one “hidden treasures” website is penning as some of the best in Illinois.

The site picked seven of the absolute best family vacation destinations in the Land of Lincoln and a few of them are right down the road.

Pittsfield’s Yogi Bear-themed Jellystone Park is just a half hour from Quincy and it’s sure to keep the kids busy. The park offers swimming, camping, wagon rides, an inflatable waterslide, outdoor movies, and even a jumping pillow. You might even get to meet Yogi Bear himself (but make sure you hide your picnic baskets)!

If your family enjoys the outdoors, Only In Your State suggests checking out their #2 pick: Harpole’s Heartland Lodge. Located in just outside of Pittsfield, it’s a perfect place to get away without driving a thousand miles and spending money on gas. Oh, and you MIGHT just run into a celebrity.

Other places on the list include Grizzly Jacks Grand Bear Resort in Utica, Six Flags Great Adventure in Gurnee (which also has some great shopping malls), and Wildfire Prairie Park, in Hanna City.

So whether any of these are up your alley, or you want to venture out and try something else, just make sure you get out and have some fun this summer!
