Hello! I am a professional phtographer from a suburb of Chicago, IL. I have a week all to my self starting on June 8th, yeah! I'd like to go on a sort of photo expedition during that week. I am a big Nature person as well as an animal lady. MY entire trip doesn't have to be all about taking pictures, but I don't want to stay in somewhere boring! Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can go? I will be camping in a tent (to save lots of lodging money) and am looking to travel no more than 6-7 hours (unless it's a really cool place and worth staying for a few days.) Any help would be appreciated!

I've always enjoyed the nature and wildlife in Northern WI (Eagle River, Minocqua, etc.). Not too far from Chgo. (I'm originally from Chgo.), plenty to see and do. Yes, Door County is lovely, too.

If coming out west, Northern CA is gorgeous, as is the Kitsap peninsula in WA. Actually, it is super tough to pinpoint just one place. Enjoy your adventure!!

Anywere in Missouri is very beatiful, especially along the rivers. The caves are great and you would have no probems finding a cheap camping ground! Right now Purple Martins are in our area! They are endangered birds! The Spring Peepers are also out making lovely but loud nosies! Hope you choose Missouri!

We used to live in Gurnee IL and enjoyed going to Starved Rock State Park and Rock Cut State Park. Or how about the Chicago Botanical Gardens in Northbrook? Or Illinois Beach State Park? And I agree with the person who suggested Door County - we had a great time there and there's so much to see. Hope you have a great week.

Door County, WI has beautiful locations, water on both sides of the pennisula, state parks, lighthouses, The Farm near Sturgeon Bay which is great for kids, underwater caves near Whitefish Dunes on the Lake Michigan side, golf courses, shops and lots of good resturanats. I have been going up there every summer for over 20 years. It is only about 250 miles from laGrange and takes about 5 hours to get there.

It's not 6-7 hours away, but here in NJ we have lots of great places if you like shooting birds. Cape May, NJ being the most popular. If you even have the time, it would be well worth the trip. It's a myth that NJ is just highways, cities and garbage dumps. It really a great place to vacation! Historic sites, wildlife, museums,the shore, mountains, the NJ Pine Barrens. What more could you ask for? Getting off my Pro-NJ soap box now.
