Best Time to Visit
Most would agree that the best time to visit Illinois is in the spring or fall. During these months the temperatures are still warm, but you will have missed most of the summer heat.
What to Pack
A little bug spray goes a long way! Throughout the summer months it can be a bit buggy - thanks to Illinois's Lake Michigan and the abundant greenery. During the cooler months, be sure to pack lots of layers as the weather can be unpredictable.
