It's been a busy summer, now it's time for a quick getaway.

Here's the best part about this little jaunt, you won't have to go to Chicago, Galena, or Lake Geneva in order to get there.

I mean, c'mon, those are the three destinations most travel sites hype up the most if you live in Wisconsin or Illinois as hotspots for getaways.

At the same time, I admit it, I totally get it too. All three of those cities are excellent and if you were to make a weekend out of a couples getaway you could do much much worse than going to any of those places.

That said, I was pleasantly surprised to see a very small town called the home of Illinois' very best romantic getaway.

According to, the best couples resort in Illinois is in Nebo, Illinois.

If you're reading this saying to yourself "Wait, where is Nebo?" You're not alone. I also had to hop on the Google machine in order to find out where this little slice of romantic couple heaven is located.

Apparently, Nebo, population 328, is in Pike County in the southwest part of Illinois.

So now that you know where Nebo is, Harpole's Heartland Lodge is your spot for a couples getaway.
