The Destination
The best things in life strike the right balance, whether you're talking about the ratio of milk to cookie or bass to treble. And the same principle applies to travel—you want to hit that sweet spot between secluded and central, relaxing and exciting, natural and urbane. Look no further than Zion, Illinois, smack in between Chicago and Milwaukee (about an hour's drive from each) on the coast of Lake Michigan. This expertly planned city is fronted by the gorgeous 4,160-acre Illinois Beach State Park.

The Digs
Perched directly on Lake Michigan, Illinois Beach Resort is a sprawling property inside protected Illinois Beach State Park. It boasts 92 guest rooms and suites, equipped with two queen beds, private baths, and wireless Internet. Many rooms also show off gorgeous views of the beach or colorful wildflowers found in the state park. Beyond inviting accommodations, guests are treated to a host of amenities on the premises, including an accessible lift and entrance to the lobby; a new, oversize indoor swimming pool; a hot tub; and a health club with fitness classes and a sauna. Still, the long stretches of sandy shoreline and sunrises over the lake are what keep visitors returning year after year.

  • "The view, staff, and overall location... This place has it all. Go have fun, walk on the beach, take a walk or ride through the park, eat in—the food was great—or sit by the bonfire. Once you visit, your heart will pull you back for another."
