Let's Plan a Staycation!
Make the most of your staycation with these suggestions.
- If you are looking for an international escape, try experiencing a new culture. There are a wide variety of festivals featuring art, music and food from around the world, such as the Chinatown Summer Fair (July 19) or Taste of Latin America (August 1-2).
- Recharge your batteries. Turn off the electronics and spend some time exploring nature. Kankakee State Park and Perry Farm both host beautiful picnic spots, parks and walking paths.
