OUTSIDE OF ORDINARY
Please note, masks are required in all indoor spaces regardless of vaccination status.
In the greater Champaign County area, we like to live Outside of Ordinary. What does that mean, exactly?
It means finding unexpected outdoor activities in the heart of the Midwest, perfect for safe exploration. It’s discovering a flavor from a cuisine you’ve never tried, one of the many reasons we claim the title of Midwest Living’s Greatest Midwest Food Town. It’s finding sculptures rising from the prairie, enhancing the sunrises and sunsets on our big sky. It’s discovering your new favorite band at our live music venues and outdoor concerts. It’s being met with kindness and our signature Midwest Hospitality.
We believe in cherishing every day. Enjoy our local food, artisans, parks & preserves, and everything that makes us Outside of Ordinary.
We know you’re wondering—where exactly is Champaign County? We like to consider ourselves the heart of the state, located in East Central Illinois, centrally located between Chicago, Indianapolis and St. Louis. With three interstates intersecting in Champaign–Urbana, an Amtrak station and Willard Airport, getting here is easy for everyone so you can find an Outside of Ordinary experience at our museums, theatres, boutique shopping, nightlife, fine dining and unparalleled attractions.GET HERE
