Illinois Vacation Rentals: Homes and Lodges
While the nation's third largest city, Chicago, commands notice with its high-rise buildings, lakefront beaches, many museums, eateries, and nightlife, one should never overlook that the state of Illinois has much more to offer. There's Galena, a charming town on the Mississippi River filled to the brim with history, and Peoria which boast itself as the “Every town” that should be the ideal other communities strive for. The state capital of Springfield contains not only the capitol building but also Abraham Lincoln's tomb, home, and new presidential library. Wanting something besides history to do? Check out the Cahokia Mounds which is the center of a prehistoric Native American city and one of twenty UNESCO World Heritage sites in the United States. One can also find a number of nature areas like Shawnee National Forest, Starved Rock State Park, Ferne Clyffe State Park, Kickapoo State Park and Pere Marquette State Park. Following Route 66 leads to shrines to Abe Lincoln, home cooked meals, old fashioned drive-in movie theaters, past farmlands all the way to Amish country ind Decatur, Arthur and Arcola. If you want to live more on the wild side consider Joliet with its casinos, races, and infamous prison, or Nauvoo which has the state's oldest winery. You can also find the Casino Queen and the Gateway Geyser on the Mississippi River in East St. Louis or follow the Lewis and Clark Trail that passes through the state.
