Spring Staycations Around Chicago

Spring Fever is here, and you can take a break even if you stay in the Chicagoland area! I have a roundup of resort locations in the suburbs for every type of spring staycation- from wellness to family fun, spa time to couple connection. If you waited until the last minute to make plans, or your original plans were cancelled, here are three spring staycations around Chicago sure to cure spring fever!

The CDC is issuing travel notices in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Many people who are exercising caution have canceled air travel plans, so local travel is an excellent alternative.

What: Family-friendly fun!

Where: Eaglewood Resort and Spa, Itasca, Ill

How: Where can you take your kids bowling AND swimming at the same location? Eaglewood Resort and Spa keeps kids moving on land and “sea” with an abundance of family-friendly activities.

Pint-sized guests and their parents can participate in two hours of cosmic bowling at the onsite Kegler’s Bowling Alley, complete with a pitcher of soda and one large pizza, complimentary arts and crafts projects and families activities; unlimited access to the resort’s heated indoor pool, hot tub, expansive fitness center, sauna and steam room; and a round of golf, or two, at the onsite golf simulator.

What: Couple’s Time to Reconnect

Where: Lincolnshire Marriott Resort, Lincolnshire, Ill

How: The Lincolnshire Marriott Resort is a quick 40 minutes from downtown Chicago but a world a way in terms of space and pace.

If the winter has you feeling disconnected from your partner, they have a number of activities and packages to rekindle the romance. From a Kiss Me Kate spring theater overnight package to a day at the spa and an onsite steak and seafood house, the resort makes creating a relaxing experience to remember simple.

What: Teacher’s Time Out

Where: Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa, Galena, Ill

How: Spring Break isn’t only for students- teachers need a little R&R too! Prices for teachers only start at $89 per night for standard rooms and 1 – 3 bedroom villas through April 30th (that’s a 50% savings).

Let the resort help you plan your staycation- from golf, wine tours to horseback riding, spa treatments at their 6,000-square-foot spa to antique shopping in downtown Galena, this is the perfect way for teachers to recharge.

CHEERS to spring staycations around Chicago that leave you feeling rested, relaxed and recharged as opposed to needing a vacation from your vacation!
