Illinois, which is the fifth most populous state in the United States, is also one of the most visited places in the country. Chicago is the central industrial city of this state. But it also has other cities that would be very interesting to you. This part of the United States boasts of having so many museums.
This is where you will find the largest presidential library in the entire country. It’s called the state-of-the-art Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield. Other equally amazing museums include the Museum of Science and Industry, the John G. Shedd Aquarium, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Field Museum of Natural History. All of these museums will give you an insight into the history and culture of the state.
Aside from the museums, you will also find the park system, which began in 1908. It is now called Fort Massac State Park. It is made up of more than a hundred parks, wildlife reserves and recreational areas. Some must-see natural attractions include the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, the Illinois Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor, the Mormon Pioneer National Historic Trail, the American Discovery Trail, and the Lincoln Home National Historic Site in Springfield.
Of course, there is no way you will miss the Clark Kent statue in the Superman costume, the Metropolis Planet newspaper, and the Super Museum if you are a big fan of this world-famous superhero. All of these attractions will make your trip to Illinois unforgettable.
