Whether you’re headed to Urbana, Illinois, for business, to visit the university, or to kick back and relax, you’ll never want for things to do see throughout your visit.
Nature lovers are sure to enjoy a walk through the Urbana Arboretum, a series of carefully crafted garden ‘rooms’ with plenty to discover for botanists and art enthusiasts alike. Or why not soak up a little of the contemporary art scene when you stroll through the Wandell Sculpture Gardens? With work from local artists, this is the perfect destination for the whole family.
Visiting the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign? Stop by the Natural History Museum for a unique look at our planet’s story. Get lost in a book at one of the school’s famous libraries. Or, dress in that blue and orange for a night at Memorial Stadium spent cheering on those “fighting Illini.”
For evening entertainment, be sure to check out the eclectic programs at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts and the Station Theatre. Or, if you’d prefer to take it easy, make a reservation at one of many stylish restaurants to sample some of Urbana’s finest wining and dining -- the perfect way to sit back and soak up the chilled out vibe of the city streets after dark.
From the university to the museums and everything in between, you’ll take advantage of all Urbana has to offer when you stay at an IHG hotel, close by your favorite city-wide destinations. And with a wide range of amenities to boot, consider IHG your home away from home as you explore all that the youthful city of Urbana has to offer.
