Welcome To
DeKalb County

Experience DeKalb County and its natural beauty, which is founded in the rich soil of our agricultural roots. Hike, bike, camp, golf, fish, canoe, or sled. Pick your own apples and pumpkins or discover the thrill of running through a corn maze. Enjoy a relaxing wine tour or tasting. Visit our museums. Shop for hidden treasures and antiques in our historic downtown shopping districts. Discover all the festivals and annual events. We invite you to come and get away…stay and play…and make new friends and memories in DeKalb County. We’re only 60 miles west of Chicago and offer affordable family fun all year long.

Marketing, advertising, and promotional efforts are focused 50 miles outside the bureau’s region to attract new dollars and new business, which results in a positive impact on economic development.
