Spread the word - Atlas Obscura is headed to the Midwest to launch a brand new Obscura Society chapter! Sign up here to explore Illinois and Chicago's most curious, wondrous, hidden, and overlooked locations with Atlas Obscura!

We've had an incredible year of events in New York and Los Angeles, curating unique, unusual access experiences ranging from hosting an elaborate cocktail soiree within a historic burial vault to arranging a private viewing within the world's largest telescope and teaching 300 well-coiffed guests how to pick locks. Now, with 2015 on the horizon we've partnered up with Enjoy Illinois to scout out the state's most curious, wondrous, hidden and overlooked locations.  Our list is long and only continues to grow, and we couldn't be more excited! Sign up above to hear about our upcoming events!
