As we inch closer and closer to Thanksgiving and the holiday season, families throughout Champaign-Urbana are taking a pause to be thankful in the midst of an extra-challenging kind of year
Gorgeous fall weather means it is a great time to enjoy the outdoors again, plan your Thanksgiving-at-home menu, reflect on the good memories you’ve made with your kids in 2020… and look ahead to all the holiday fun coming between now and the end of the year
Not quite as warm as last week, this perfect fall weather is another great time to head outdoors this weekend. Our Champaign County Forest Preserve District locations are waiting for you, along with lots of other great places to experience nature near Champaign-Urbana.
