Not far from Airbnb this is a Chicago favorite that opened here in Normal just a year ago. Always a great meal & reasonably priced. Many of my guests like using the drive through as it is just minutes away. Cheeseburger, fries and the chocolate cake is to die for.

Sightseeing
I like the small town vibe here. Many specialty eateries. Maggie OMalleys Irish Food & Pub, Medici, Italian food, all great places for lunch or dinner. Insomnia Cookies are always warm from the oven. Home of Sugar Mama’s Best Cupcakes ever. Want real ice cream? Try Emack & Bolios. Want specialty coffee? Try Coffee Hound. Don’t ever go to uptown without an appetite! If you have children with you check out The Discovery Museum.

This is a nice experience. The city started converting old railroad tracks throughout the area to a trail. Great for hiking, lots of trees and nature to view from a different perspective. Nice walking, biking & running trail.
