Vintage fun in Volo

Last week my husband Chris and I took a day and drove an hour to Volo, Illinois, a town I had never even heard of before. With a population of just a few thousand people, why would we choose this small town to spend our day? 

Three words: Volo Auto Museum.

Situated just an hour from our town is a giant museum filled with hundreds and maybe even thousands of cars -- vintage classic cars for sale, and legendary cars plucked from movie sets. We spent hours ogling over the various cars, then walked just across the street and explored three vintage malls for another couple of hours. I absolutely recommend visiting Volo if you love cars, antiquing, and exploring museums. It was a great day, and I took a LOT of photos.
