Best Places to Visit in Illinois

  • Chicago: As the third-largest city in the United States, this is a popular destination for visitors to Illinois. Many of the spots that visitors will head to in Chicago are in an area known as The Loop. Here you will find landmarks such as the Chicago Institute of Art and Millennium Park. 
  • Springfield: The state capital is another popular destination for visitors. One of the city’s claims to fame is that it once served as the home of Abraham Lincoln. Because of that, visitors will find quite a few destinations centered around the former president including the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. 
  • Galena: Many people refer to this town as the city that time forgot. The town sits on the banks of the Mississippi River and at one point it was a major port along the river. Today this bustling tourist mecca is a great place to stroll down the old-style Main Street where you will find plenty of shops in the old 19th-century buildings that line the street.
