Best Summer Travel Destinations in the Midwest


Planning a vacation with your family? With summer finally upon us, we’ve compiled a handy list of popular Midwest destinations where you’ll get the most bang for your buck.  Check out these beautiful vacation spots that are great for summer road trips.  

Traverse City, Michigan

If you want to attend the city’s signature event - the Cherry Festival – with your family, you are just in time. The week-long extravaganza lets you enjoy live concerts, thrilling rides, and of course, lip-smacking food (they have the best cherry pie)! This year’s Cherry Festival will be held between June 29 and July 6.

In addition to the 93-year-old festival, Traverse City also has some of the most beautiful beaches in the Midwest. You can head out of the town center and have a blast with your kids while exploring the shores of Lake Michigan. 

Or how about climbing up to the top of the sand dunes? 

Door County, Wisconsin

This is a stunning location that feels like a coastal escape. Door County is a peninsula that offers tons of fun outdoor activities for both the kids and adults. There are five incredible state parks here along with 30 beaches and 10 lighthouses! 

You can drive there with your family and cover the picturesque 300 miles-long coastline on your way. 

Wisconsin Dells

If you and your kids love water parks (who doesn’t?), Wisconsin Dells is the go-to place for you. Did you know that the town is often referred to as the “Water Park Capital of the World? 

There’s more to Wisconsin Dells than water parks, though. You can head to the Devil’s Lake State Park which has over 29 miles of incredibly adventurous hiking trails. Don’t forget to pack your mountain bikes for this Midwest vacation. 

Enjoy Your Family Vacation With the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica 

There is a reason the Chrysler Pacifica has been named a Best By by Consumers Digest for three years in a row, in addition to being the 2019 Family Car of the Year by, and an IIHS Top Safety Pick for 2019.  

Award-Winning Safety

You want to make sure your family is protected when hitting the open road. That’s why the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica has Advanced SafetyTec. ParkSense Front, Rear, Parallel, and Perpendicular alerts help you always know what’s going on outside of your car. That isn’t all - thanks to Forward Collision Warning braking, you’ll be able to avoid any dangerous drivers in front of you. 

Keep Kids Entertained 

Don’t want your kids to be bored during the trip? The Chrysler Pacifica has you covered. The Uconnect Theater features two ten inch, HD touchscreens, a Blu-ray player, two HDMI inputs, and wireless streaming capabilities. If your children decide they want a break from watching Netflix, they can use some of the interactive apps and games that come standard in Uconnect, including Math Flash Cards (who said school was out for summer?). 

Who says long family trips have to be boring? You can pick a Midwest vacation spot from the above-listed options, or better yet, pick all of them! There is no road hard enough for the Chrysler Pacifica.
