The city got its start in 1853. In August of that year, the weekly newspaper reported the rapid progress of the building of the city, with the railroad calling the town Kankakee Depot. The town didn't formally exist then; residential and commercial blocks weren't filled until 1854. The area was platted around the Illinois Central railroad station, and various additions soon doubled the community's area.

In 1855, a meeting formally organized the settlement into a town, and Kankakee City was created. Ten years down the road, the town changed from a village, governed by trustees, into a city. This meant a city council and a mayor, and the name changed to Kankakee, which still holds up today.

When to Visit Kankakee, Illinois

When it comes to tourism, July is the busiest month in Kankakee, Illinois. June and August follow closely. Keep this in mind when booking your travel, as both flights and hotels will be more expensive during these months. Of course, you can still save if you book your trip in advance. November is a slower month in Kankakee, so you'll find some savings there if you book during that month.

In the fall, from September through November, daily high temperatures range from the low 80s to the mid-40s. The lower end of that range will still feel cold, since the area is prone to humidity and wind. The weather affects tourism during these months, and you'll find that hotel prices are affordable.

Likewise, the winter months (think December through February) come with cold temperatures that aren't enjoyable for travelers who flock to warm weather. The average high during the winter is in the 30s, and it can rain or snow a small amount. It's a relatively slow time for tourism, so you'll also find good rates if you're up for braving the weather.

Things start picking up in the spring, with March through May being the second busiest period for tourism in the area. You'll have more moderate temperatures, especially as you move further into the spring, without reaching peak tourist season, so it makes it a good period to book a trip.

The summer months boast comfortable weather, but as a result, it's also the busiest period when it comes to tourism. Warmer temperatures mean accommodations cost more than other times of the year.
