Illinois is a busy state and home to one of the country’s biggest cities, so there’s always something to do here, whether you’re looking for a weekend day trip or a long road trip in your Ford vehicle. Here are some fun fall things to do in Illinois this season.
2018 is Illinois’ bicentennial anniversary as a state, and farmers are celebrating in style, designing bicentennial mazes in their corn fields. Corn mazes are a tradition every year in Illinois, but this year is special. You can visit the Richardson Adventure Farm in Chicago, Abbey Farms in Aurora, Hardy’s Reindeer Ranch in Rantoul, and many more!
Another way to spend your fall in your Ford truck or car is to visit the many orchards and farms in Illinois. Apple-picking is a classic fall activity. No matter where you live in Illinois, there’s an orchard you can drive to for an afternoon trip. Illinois is home to all kinds of farms, from pumpkin patches to syrup farms to vineyards.
It wouldn’t be fall without Oktoberfest, and there are celebrations going on all over Illinois this autumn. We recommend road tripping up to Chicago for the Oktoberfest at Starved Rock State Park, the most popular state park in Illinois, with its waterfalls, naturally formed canyons, and beautiful foliage.
No matter which direction in Illinois you drive, you’re bound to find something fun to do and something beautiful to see. Take your trip in a car from Van Drunen Ford.
