Probably Don’t Take The Kids On Vacation To These Illinois Cities
When the temperatures are subzero and the outdoor conditions are miserable, that's the perfect time to start planning a family vacation somewhere fun and warm.
But if this is going to be a getaway that you're taking the kids along for, you may want to plan ahead to make sure the city you're visiting has plenty of activities and attractions that are family-friendly.
A new survey was recently released by Lawn Love that ranked 200 American cities by how kid-friendly they are for vacationing and the results showed several towns around the midwest that rank high on the list, but a few that you will want to avoid if the kiddos are in-tow.
The 200 cities were ranked in 23 categories like affordability, safety, and ease of using transportation.
Top 10 cities for a "Kid-Friendly" vacation according to the Lawn Love survey:
#10 San Antonio
#9 Los Angeles
#4 Las Vegas
Now that we know the top places where you should plan a vacation with the kids, here are some of the midwestern cities that ranked toward the bottom:
Joliet, Illinois was ranked #174 out of 200 cities and was nearly the worst on the list for ease of "getting around" (#196). Joliet did have high scores for affordability at #78.
Rockford, Illinois didn't rank much better at #171 with low rankings for "eating" and "having fun." I would disagree with the eating rank, and you can "have fun" anywhere you are if the company you keep is enjoyable.
Two other cities in Illinois had more favorable scores with Naperville at #73 and Aurora #79.
On the Wisconsin side, Milwaukee ranked #56 on the list with high "affordability" scores and Madison was #86.
