Many Chicago vacation packages provide you with the opportunity to stay close to nature; rent a car in Itasca to combine a rural feel with the proximity of a big city. Itasca, about 27 miles from downtown Chicago, is home to the Springbrook Nature Center and the North Salt Creek County Forest Preserve, and it's also adjacent to several large nature preserves. Definitely an outdoor enthusiast's delight!
Whether you prefer an SUV, minivan, sedan, or a sleek ride, you'll find Itasca rental cars have you covered. Get behind the wheel, and head out for outdoor adventures at the Springbrook Nature Center, which provides a glimpse into what the area looked like before it was settled; make sure to stop and let the prairie grasses tickle your face. At the North Salt Creek County Forest Preserve, you can picnic, fish, and hike in warmer seasons, or strap on the cross-country skis when it snows. Want a little more nature? The Songbird Slough Forest Preserve is adjacent to Itasca and offers wetlands, meadows, prairies, and wildlife on nearly 400 acres. You can fish and picnic here, but if you want to walk or bike, you need to use a paved road. Other nearby preserves worth exploring include the Spring Creek Reservoir and Maple Meadows County Forest Preserve. Don't have a rental car yet? If you're ready to check out Chicago, choose among the cheap car rentals in Itasca to get you there in style. If the day is clear, take the elevator up to the sky deck at the Willis Tower, where you'll be able to see four states from 1,353 feet in the air. Afterward, grab a deep-dish pizza, and walk it off on the Lakefront Trail fronting Lake Michigan.
