Things to do in Illinois
Illinois is very diverse in the activities that are available to you. You have the large city atmosphere of Chicago or the laid back towns that dot the Mississippi River. You can take a leisurely ride on a riverboat or enjoy a late night on the town.
Chicago is the most well known city, with the 3rd largest population in the United States, it is easy to see why. It is so much more than just a large city though and has everything you would expect and more.
The summer months are very active. Being located right on Lake Michigan, there are lots of water activities available - sailing, fishing, and water skiing. There are also all of the major league sports for all of the seasons. They take their sports seriously and a game is loads of fun.
The winter months are just as active. There are art galleries, fine dining - be sure to try some Chicago style pizza, and enough nightlife to keep anyone happy.
Historic Galena, Route 66, the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln and the Mississippi River are all unique adventures to explore and are easy to get to.
