Cheap Flights to Champaign
Champaign was established in 1855, when the Illinois Central Railroad put its tracks two miles west of downtown Urbana. Initially called "West Urbana", it was renamed "Champaign" when it obtained a city sanction in 1860. Both the city and district name were gotten from Champaign County, Ohio.
