If you’re looking for a combination of relaxation and adventure, consider the town of Skokie, IL for your next vacation. With its convenient location only a few minutes outside of Chicago, Skokie is the perfect place to return to after a full day in the Windy City.
Visit the Skokie Heritage Museum, which features displays on the area’s past, as well as traveling historical exhibits. Go bike riding through the Sculpture Park, which houses 60 pieces of art strewn over two miles of parkland. Or, simply step into your best golf gear and spend the day exploring Skokie’s many lush greens.
Bringing the family along? Stop by the Exploratorium for an interactive day of learning. The kids will also enjoy a spin at the local ice rink or a refreshing turn at the Skokie Water Playground.
When you start to crave the big city, just hop onto public transport and head into Chicago. From the Skydeck at the Willis Tower to a jaw dropping architecture tour to high-end shopping down the Magnificent Mile to a ride on the Navy Pier’s Ferris wheel, you’ll find plenty to see and do on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Head back to Skokie for low-key and relaxing entertainment and a good night’s rest at your IHG hotel, where the staff is committed to ensuring that you get the most out of your visit.

We came to Chicago for the Draft and a Blackhawks game and were very impressed with the staff and the service. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
Our room was average (a bit small for 4) but[More]
was very clean and we were able to get early check-in and late check out from the extremely helpful staff.
We would recommend staying here based on the great people who work there and the convenient location. [Less]
