State Farm Center, Champaign, Illinois, United States of America
Do you ever feel like screaming your lungs out at a live wrestling game, or seeing a gasp-worthy yet riveting Broadway play, or laughing your guts out because of a stage comedian’s ceaseless puns and jokes? All of these can be experienced in the State Farm Center, located in the Champaign, Illinois. It’s one of the largest facilities in the State, and also considered as University of Illinois’s pride. Recently, the complex underwent a massive renovation, reaching a staggering amount of $170 million, to up its already world class service. The facility is within the university and is surrounded by brimming restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, and shops.
Book a room in Days Inn, which is only 9 minutes away from the Center. The Hampton Inn, on the other hand, offers comfort and convenience to its guests, as well as Comfort Suites — both of which are in Urbana and also close to the university, train stations, and museums. Don’t let your trip end without setting foot in Krannert Art Museum, also located in the University of Illinois. It boasts a profuse collection of fine art from all over the world and it also holds interactive programs and vibrant exhibitions. Might as well pay a visit to Monticello Railway Museum, an all-volunteer outfit that exhibits, preserve, and interprets the history of railroading and trains. What’s more? You can experience riding the trains, too! After a fun experience here, you can unwind at the Rockome Gardens in Arcola.
