Evanston is a smaller city right outside Chicago and makes for an ideal romantic weekend getaway for couples. What could be better than breathtaking waterfront views accompanied by delicious dining options at highly-acclaimed fine dining establishments? Coming from a bigger city, you may prefer somewhere a little more low-key. Head west to visit Franklin Grove, IL, a small village that is situated in the Nachusa Grasslands. It’s home to roaming buffalo and is a great place to unplug. You’ll feel recharged when you return to work the next week.
