The perfect way to start a trip through the Hoosier State is in one of our Cruise America Schererville RV rentals. There are no boundaries when you travel in a recreational vehicle, nor are there any schedules to follow, except the one you create.
Known as the "Crossroads of the Nation," Schererville is a great place to begin your Midwest adventures. It's a family friendly town with several activities for the whole gang. For instance, enjoy a trip to Jak's Warehouse Indoor Family Fun Center, or make the 15-minute drive to Gary to hike the Miller Woods Trail and explore the unique ecosystems of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore at the Douglas Center for Environmental Education.
Just a short half-hour drive from Schererville will get you to Chicago, where you will find a lifetime of activities and attractions. Visit the world-renowned Museum of Science and Industry, or see all your favorite movie and TV cars at the Volo Auto Museum. Tour the Windy City on one of the many bicycle tours available, or stroll down the Navy Pier for shopping and fun family play. Get a bird's eye view of the city by traveling 1,000 feet to the top of the John Hancock Observatory or head over to the Willis Tower and rise up to the Skydeck on the 99th floor for a glass-bottom thrill. You and your family can visit the Shedd Aquarium, the world's largest indoor aquarium with more than 8,000 aquatic animals. In addition, the Chicago area has two of the world's best zoos. One is the Lincoln Park Zoo, and the other is the Brookfield Zoo, just west of Chicago. Take the River and Lake Architectural Tour and get a glimpse of the magnificent riverside buildings that form Chicago's skyline. This 75-minute boat tour is the best way to get an up-close view of Chicago's most famous buildings. And don't let the visit go by without indulging in some of the best food you'll find on the planet. Be one of the 22 million annual visitors to walk the Magnificent Mile along Michigan Avenue. Here you'll find 3.1 million square feet of retail shopping in the 460 stores, 275 restaurants, 51 hotels and 2 museums … all in the same block! Keep in mind that there are dozens of wonderful RV parks in the area so you can set up camp if you decide to stay for a while.
If you want to get out of the big city, take a tour to the Arthur Amish Country, located 10 miles west of Interstate 57 off exit 203 in East Central Illinois. You'll enjoy the friendliness of the residents, whose motto is "You’re a stranger only once." There you will find a huge variety of gift shops, fine clothing stores, craft shops, furniture shops and all kinds of restaurants serving some of the best home cooking you'll ever experience.
There are so many things to do in the surrounding area of Schererville, that you could spend an entire vacation without going more than a few hours in any direction. However, no matter how far you go, it is always enjoyable in your spacious, comfortable class C rental RV from Cruise America.
