Kids aren’t the only ones who love summer. And there are so many fun, grown-up things to do in Champaign-Urbana in June, you’re going to need to get those babysitters booked ASAP!
Whether you’re looking for a date-night atmosphere or just a fun afternoon with friends, we’ve rounded up a list of the top places for adults to go in Champaign-Urbana and beyond this month.
The School of Music at the University of Illinois is hosting a summer series of FREE harp concerts throughout June. Check the website for dates and times.
40 North’s Friday Night Live in Downtown Champaign kicked off May 31. Sure, it’s family-friendly, which we LOVE, but sometimes you just want to soak up our great downtown Champaign vibe while having a leisurely meal at a “grown-up” meal time while listening to great music.
Roast a wiener on an open fire and sip on some wine at Sleepy Creek Vineyards‘ “Wieners and Wine,” held every Friday now through October. You buy the drinks, they provide the hot dogs, fixings and fire to roast it over.
13 Thursdays happens every Thursday — betcha couldn’t have figured that one out — in Campustown, and it’s a great way to enjoy the best of campus while the students are away (well, mostly). One of the best parts: Free movies on the Quad, starting at 9 p.m.
Speaking of Campustown, while the students are gone for the summer try out one of our favorite restaurants. This is the time of year for locals to support campus town businesses (and to avoid the campus crowds!)
