Often lovingly referred to as being 'the Prairie State,' Illinois houses a diverse range of geographical scenery and landscapes - everything from sprawling metropolices cities like Chicago, to miles of quaint farmland, lush dense forests, wetlands, and green hills. Those looking for a city break and those looking for an immersion in nature will both enjoy a visit to Illinois.
While in Illinois, a must is to visit Chicago, the 'windy city'. It goes without saying that trying an authentic thick crust 'Chicago style' pizza should be high on your Chicago to-do list. Don't miss the contemporary art installations that stand proud at Chicago's Cloud Gate, and be sure to take in a scenic afternoon stroll along the Navy Pier. For views, ascend 103 floors to the Skydeck Chicago (the former Sears Tower). This is a great place for photos and panoramas over the Illinois capital, especially as the sun begins to set.
Base yourself in Chicago and travel out around the state from there.
Illinois can be enjoyed all year round.
