Our love for our community runs deep, and we can't wait to welcome visitors for our Outside of Ordinary experiences that are currently operating safely. The greater Champaign County area is a destination because of our Midwest Hospitality, so now is the time to support those individuals who live and work here in our hotels, restaurants, shops, parks, museums, and more. 

We'll be telling their stories and sharing how you can safely explore our area. Stay tuned to our blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for inspiration, and share your #OutsideOfOrdinary experiences with us! 

Before heading out, check champaigncountysafe.org to discover the local businesses that have taken the safety pledge. 

Be well—from all of us at Visit Champaign County.


The Heart of the Midwest

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.
