Chicago is the best-known city in Illinois, and dominates the state with its reputation for being one of America’s most impressive cities. Full of culture that is idiosyncratic, it has its own identity as well as an impressive repertoire of architecture, museums, restaurants and clubs. Chicago is the beginning or the end of the all-American road trip on Route 66, the iconic and evocative highway that originally ran from Chicago to Santa Monica in California, not far from Los Angeles.  Get your first taste of old America with drive-in cinemas, then be dazzled by modern America with stratospheric skyscrapers, deep-dish Chicago-style pizzas and world-renowned art galleries, huge sports events, rock festivals and shopping on an epic scale.

Southern Illinois is a stark contrast to bustling Chicago - national forests, rocky peaks, scenic waterfalls (not bad for the second flattest state in the union) and natural lakes. Take a trip on the Mississippi River to discover sleepy towns, wind-beaten cliffs and 19th-century stone cottages. For an adventure holiday, why not journey to the Shawnee Hills, mini-mountains that are perfect for outdoor activities for the entire family. With nothing too daunting in prospect, you can explore by horseback, bike, two feet or by car. The Shawnee National Forest is nestled between the Mississippi and Ohio rivers, so you can set up camp on the river banks and spend your days fishing or meandering in a boat discovering hidden creeks and bluffs. For climbers, Jackson Falls offers a 60ft canvas of sandstone cliffs and boulders for you to ascend.
