I have enjoyed my stay in Champaign after being here almost a month. The weather did not turn hot till two days ago and I was able to walk everyday since I did not have a car while my husband was at work on temporary assignment. The Extended Stayamerica is in a good location. Right next door is the Country inn & suites and The Wingate. From there I was able to walk to Meijer, Target, Walmart, The Mall, Kohls, and TJ Max. and many restaurants.
Thank you RWDW for all your recommendations in my previous post. We spent a weekend in Chicago and had a fabulous time. We spent another Sunday enjoying the gardens and had a picnic at The Allerton and just yesterday we enjoyed canoeing at Kickapoo State Park. These ideas made staying in a hotel bareable. Thanks again.
I must mention our favorite restaurant was the Sunsinger Cafe and Wine shop. Really Good!
The people in Champaign were all friendly and it is a lovely area.
