Why Illinois Is So Popular
There are certain things that make a random area on a map a very popular place to go. So what is it that makes Illinois so popular? There are many reasons why, but mainly it is because it offers everything that a person could possibly want. From the Mississippi River to glowing countryside or from large cities such as Chicago to the rich presidential history. The state is best known as the land of Abraham Lincoln, but even current President Barack Obama calls the state his home.
There are fantastic tours you can go on to visit the historic landmarks that still bear the fingerprints of Abraham Lincoln, one of the greatest of all American presidents. Obama has started to write his own history, with the site where he announced his presidential candidacy being of particular popularity nowadays.
There is far more to do than go on a presidential tour. Many people come to Illinois to travel the Mississippi River (there is a fantastic programme on ITV about this see here), feeling as if they are on the Proud Mary, calmly rolling on the river. The history you can experience, particularly in the Mississippi River Country is truly fascinating.
Witness sites of ancient Native Americans who made the area their home and combine this with modern technologies, such as sipping wine in one of the working vineyards. For a true and untouched piece of American history, this is where you need to go. These are but two of the examples but there is no way you will spend as much as one bored minute.
