Tourist attractions in Illinois

Most exciting and most beautiful attractions in Illinois are located in Chicago on Lake Michigan. This American state is one of the most populated in the United States, with very good infrastructure and well-developed industry and agriculture.

It does not have a large impact on nature in Illinois, especially in the Mississippi and Illinois rivers. Unfortunately the US border north of Lake Michigan is so built that can boldly declare a lack of vegetation and fauna in the area. However, we will begin our walk to Starved Rock State Park.

Located on the Illinois River with over 20 km of hiking trails that run through beautiful canyons and waterfalls. A thought for the convenience of tourists, without interfering with wildlife.

Were built campsites suitable to live if you intend to practice fishing or boating in the river. The side arms of the Illinois River has some very beautiful waterfalls in the winter freeze and become ice climbing. Bookmark and Share
