Bloomington, Indiana Weekend Road Trip From Chicago | Travel Vlog & Scavenger Hunt

This month, I was so excited to partner with Visit Bloomington to showcase the city of Bloomington, IN – home of my alma mater Indiana University – by taking a fun weekend getaway from Chicago.

In this video, my husband and I hit the road after work on a Friday in mid-May, and journeyed four hours south (okay, five hours because of Friday traffic) to the city where we met as college freshmen.

As always, a return to Bloomington is a trip down memory lane. The city has changed and blossomed so much since we met there in 2006, and it’s exciting to see its growth every time we return!

For this particular adventure, we got to follow a scavenger hunt list of quintessentially fun Bloomington hotspots, courtesy of my partnership with Visit Bloomington. As part of our enthusiasm for B-town, we aimed to visit as many as possible over our two day trip!

I hope this video provides an entertaining overview of the variety of fun destinations and activities in Bloomington, and entices you to consider it for an easy weekend getaway!
