I know groups of women that get together and drive hours and hours just to get away for the weekend.

Little do they know that one of the best spots for a quick trip for the ladies is in Illinois.

I kind of thought it might be a place like Galena but nope, they were left off the list from Travel & Leisure.

The popular travel blog listed the 25 Best Girls' Weekend Getaways Around the World and said Chicago is one of the best.

Chicago is a great pick for a city break, even during its famously frigid winters. In the colder months, you can go ice skating, treat yourself to over-the-top hot chocolate creations, sip wine in riverside "igloos," and warm up over a shared deep-dish pizza. Summers in Chicago are even more glorious — it's the perfect time to hit up the city's festivals, beaches, and rooftop bars.

Obviously, Chicago is a good spot for girls' weekends, guys' weekends, or just family weekends because The Windy City has so much to offer.
