The fifth most populous state in the United States, Illinois is a thriving destination in the Midwest. There are no limits to what you can do, discover, learn and experience in Illinois. In Chicago, soar above city limits at the Willis Tower’s Skydeck Ledge, visit “the bean” at Millennium Park, experience a Chicago Bears football game at Soldier Field, and go for some carnival fun at Navy Pier. Elsewhere in the state, you can tour the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, hike through Shawnee National Forest in Harrisburg and revel in the sight of Japanese Maples in bloom at the Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford. Galena will delight you with its charm, where you can take a magical carriage ride through the quaint streets adorned with impressive architecture, like the Ulysses S. Grant Home State Historic Site.
