Weekend getaways from Chicago are our reward for making it through week after week with hardly any complaining. While we can't always hop on a plane to Maui or even make the shorter escape to Philadelphia, we can almost always find time for a weekend away. Chicago's central location means we're just a day's drive from exploring new farmers markets, craft beer destinations and other great spots for finding regional foods. Whether you're looking for a long weekend spent hitting restaurants and bars, a relaxing staycation or a kid-friendly getaway, we've got you covered with itineraries for making the most of your adventure.
