  1. Minneapolis

Minnesota’s biggest city has a lot to offer Midwesterners. With beautiful weather in the summers, everything is green and lush in the city. Rent bikes and travel around the city’s expansive trail system, or visit one of the many lakes. Minneapolis also has museums, restaurants, and historical attractions to keep you busy.

  1. Lake Michigan – Michigan Side

Driving into Michigan can give you a whole new view of Lake Michigan. Small towns like Saugatuck or Holland have quaint downtown areas that are packed with breweries, cafes, and shops. They also offer easy access to beaches, where you can relax or swim on a nice summer day.

  1. Mark Twain National Forest

If you’re looking for good camping, Missouri’s parks are beautiful, offering mountain views, lakes, and lots of hiking. The Mark Twain National Forest is only around six hours from Barrington, IL, and you and your family can enjoy nature and the great outdoors. This option may especially be tempting after the long Illinois winter!

Wherever you head to on your road trip this summer, Illinois is a central location with access to many different states and cities. Before you leave, visit our Ford service center to make sure your car is in working order, or take a new Ford car for a test drive for your next upgrade.
