Near the Illinois-Wisconsin border, Wadsworth is an idyllic town that is ideally located. Wadsworth is a rural haven that still offers access to Chicago, Illinois' busiest and most glamorous city, and Wadsworth hotels embody countryside comfort and hospitality. Located in Lake Country, it offers locals, city goers, and tourists alike a place for rest and respite among acres of farmland and parks. Founded by farmers, Wadsworth is still very much agrarian to its core—something that makes it one of the most charming places to stay in the area.
It's simple to get to Wadsworth from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. You can take a cab or rent a car and head north on I-294. While there aren't any public transportation options, you'll probably want to check out Wadsworth car rentals anyway. After all, what's the good of staying in such pristine, pastoral Lake Country if you don't have a vehicle to explore it in? Once you're settled in to one of the comfortable hotels in Wadsworth, see some of the town's most iconic landmarks. Drive to nearby farms to see the area's beloved Lipizzan horses, and don't miss the eccentric "pyramid house." The private residence of a wealthy American, its creators bill this Egyptian-inspired house as the largest 24-karat gold object ever created. The owners occasionally open the house for tours, which allow you to glimpse the replica of King Tut's tomb and 64-foot statue of Ramesses II. You can even take a day trip into Chicago by driving for a little over an hour or by driving to nearby Waukegan and taking the train into the city. Search for cheap hotels in Chicago to stay the night to experience the nightlife, but don't be surprised if you feel the simple, provincial town of Wadsworth pulling you back.
