By Sara Yaniga, Macaroni KID Chicago November 10, 2021

Looking for an easy getaway?  Someplace close enough where you can toss a couple of bags in the car and be there without too much windshield time?  A place to connect to your family? Your partner? Friends?  Each season we will highlight a drivable location perfect for a hassle-free getaway. Are you looking for a fall vacation? Consider a trip this season to Chicago's second shore!

Harbor Country, Michigan is an area that has been named one of the “20 Best Places to Go in 2020” by Conde Nast Traveler and is quickly becoming known as Chicago’s second shore, located 70 miles away, and often referred to as “The Hamptons of the Midwest.”  Located in Southwest Michigan, short-term rentals are the best way to visit, where you can decide what will make your getaway memorable for you.

Would you like to be near the lake? Or do you prefer to be able to walk to the downtown and restaurant area?  Maybe somewhere that is easy access to both! Looking for a home with enough room to gather multiple families together for the holidays or a reunion?  Check out the family-owned Bluefish Vacation Rentals to find just what you need and rely on their concierge services to plan your time in Harbor County.
