If you want to get to the heart of the United States, then your next destination should be Illinois.

Illinois is said to be the microcosm of the United States and a state of firsts. When it comes to its economy, Illinois does not also want to be behind. Illinois is a hub for various industries including business services (it is houses the headquarters of CME Group and Chicago Board Options Exchange), advanced manufacturing, education, agriculture, biotechnology, energy, and sports. Of course another industry that is flourishing in Illinois is the tourism industry. This is predominantly thanks to the many sights and attractions in the state.

When planning an itinerary to Illinois, be sure to include a visit to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and see for yourself why the state is also called the Land of Lincoln. The Magnificent Mile in Chicago is also a must-visit. In here you will find museums, entertainment outlets, hotels, restaurants, and truly magnificent buildings. Also include a visit to the Ulysses S. Grant Home, Art Institute of Chicago, and Crystal Gardens and Ferris wheel in Navy Pier. If you want a more adventurous activity, the historical Starved Rock State Park offers a beautiful background for hikes. Obviously, do not miss a chance to have a photo taken in front of the world’s first skyscraper: the Home Insurance Building in Chicago.
