July 18th, 2016 by


In addition to living in or near the greatest city in the world, drivers in the Westmont, Naperville, Elmhurst, and Chicago area are perfectly situated to take a number of fun and exciting day trips. So make the most of your summer, hop in your Acura model of choice, and hit the open road to one of these wonderful — and too often overlooked — destinations.

Madison, WI

A three hour ride by car, which makes it a perfect trip for the spacious and luxurious SUVs like the 2017 Acura RDX or 2017 Acura MDX, a trip to Madison, Wisconsin is sure to be casual, relaxing, and full of adventure. With its wealth of lakeside sites and diverse dining options, Madison is perfect to explore. Stretch your legs out after your ride north with a nice walk or bike ride in this ideal college town.

Racine, WI

A short 80 minute drive, Racine, Wisconsin is home to a number of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings. This makes it a perfect for lovers of architecture, design, and art. Racine is a perfect trip to make in your classy 2016 Acura TLX.

Holland, MI

Approximately two hours by car, Holland, Michigan resembles a quaint Dutch village, and it’s perfect for a cheap and quick getaway. With its wide streets, Holland is enjoyably traversed on foot, or in a nimble sedan like the 2016 Acura RLX.

The North Shore

Familiar to most Chicago residents, the North Shore of Lake Michigan is an ideal day-trip destination. The small community will be familiar to fans of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and you can explore its lakeside coast with a sedan like the Acura ILX.

New Glarus, WI

Home to the renowned New Glarus Brewery, this small town is a perfect getaway for Chicagoans looking to get a taste of food and beverage that’s only available in Wisconsin. Any one of our Acura vehicles would be perfect for the easy two-and-a-half-hour drive to New Glarus from Chicago.
