You might feel a little like you stepped out of a time machine when you set foot in some parts of this delightful Midwestern town. A wholesome repose, Litchfield, Illinois is a popular stopping point in between the much faster paced cities of Chicago and St. Louis. However, one visit to Litchfield and some visitors may be charmed enough to skip the larger cities and make it their primary destination.
Located along the two alignments of the original Route 66, Litchfield has a few great old bastions of comfort for the weary traveller, or curious leisure seeker, that should not be missed. Stop for a slice of pie and a hot cup of coffee at the Ariston Cafe, possibly the oldest restaurant on Route 66. Get some snacks and enjoy a movie under the stars at the Sky View Drive-In, an original Route 66 theater.
Wander through the 266 beautifully scenic acres of Shoal Creek Conservation Area. Or picnic under a pavilion and play a round of disc golf at Walton Park Lake.
When planning your trip, book a room at one of our hotels in Litchfield, where comfort and affordability always go hand in hand. Enjoy a swim in the indoor pool, or relax at the end of the day in the whirlpool. At an IHG Litchfield hotel, you’re sure to enjoy a fun and relaxing stay.
