Top 5 Things To Do in Bloomington

  • Peer into the lives of generations past at the McLean County Museum of History, its collection of 18,000 objects allowing you to understand what life was like for the Native Americans who originally inhabited the area and the immigrants who arrived later
  • Visit the Miller Park Zoo, where you’ll see a wide variety of wild animals, such as red pandas, alligators, and tigers
  • Practise your swing on one of the four outstanding golf courses in the area, recognised as some of the best in the country
  • Rent a bike and ride over 20 miles on the Constitution Trail, which in addition to great scenery provides a chance to learn about the US Constitution from the signs posted along the way
  • See the David Davis Mansion, an exquisite example of Victorian style set in the most beautiful garden in the city

Plan Your Bloomington Holiday

In Illinois the winters are cold and the summers are hot, so it’s best to buy tickets to Bloomington for the spring and autumn if you prefer more moderate conditions. Etihad Airways has flight deals to Bloomington during these times of the year. If you travel in March, you can enjoy the Spring Bloom Arts Festival, an event where hundreds of artists show their works.

Most tourists, however, prefer to travel in summer, mainly because of the golf courses and amusement parks. The Illinois Shakespeare Festival also takes place during the summer months. Obviously, to secure cheap hotels in Bloomington during these events, you are recommended to purchase your tickets well in advance.
