Welcome to Illinois

Are You Up For Amazing?

Chicago, the Blues Capital of the World, offers stunning architecture, unbeatable shopping and renowned museums and galleries. It is the ideal starting point to explore the wealth of attractions in Illinois that open up and reveal the American way of life.

Greeting you with a dramatic and sweeping skyline, Chicago creates a bold first impression that opens up into a city rich with unexpected treasures. The 29 miles of breath-taking shoreline lend themselves to cycling, jogging and walking and all can be viewed from 360 Chicago (formerly the John Hancock Building) and Skydeck Chicago in the Willis Tower.

Chicago is the starting point for the renowned Route 66. Cruise down ‘The Mother Road’ and see the famous sites such as the Pontiac Mural, on your way to Springfield, the state capital and home to one of America’s most famous presidents with the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.

Outdoor adventures and sweeping vistas are set against the backdrop of the banks of the Mississippi River Country, and then you can find time to reconnect in a place where life slows down in enchanting Galena and Alton.
