Affordable Vacation Ideas for Chicagoland Residents

Published by Scott Hershman

As the weather warms up, people are beginning to plan their spring and summer vacations around the Chicago area. If you are a Chicagoland resident, then you don’t have to plan out lavish resorts or expensive beach getaways this year. Instead, look to our neighbors to the north to provide a fun and stress-free vacation!

Wisconsin Vacation Ideas

The first idea that may spring to mind for vacation spots up north is an inclusive resort in the Wisconsin Dells, but there is so much more to see from our Lake Michigan neighbors. With more than 16,000 lakes throughout the state, finding a vacation destination in a flash is easy. For lovers of outdoor activities, you will find a bounty of beautiful nature to explore and adventure in.

There are several heritage sites to visit in Wisconsin, such as the Swiss traditions and festivals found in New Glarus. There are nearly a dozen Native American tribes that educate and share their history through cultural exhibitions and informative museums. It would also be impossible to mention Wisconsin without mentioning cheese, and for all the dairy lovers out there, dozens of cheese festivals occur throughout Wisconsin each year.

Save Up Before Your Road Trip

Having fun on your vacation doesn’t have to break the bank, and you can find dozens of cheap vacation ideas in Wisconsin. If you need to get money today in order to spend time planning your visit up north, then come to a WSCE location and take advantage of our check-cashing services! We can process all types of checks and have cash in your hand the same day, including government and pension checks!

If you need help cashing a check or need other financial services such as processing money orders, then come to the Crystal Lake Currency Exchange on your way north!
