Play: Attractions

Alive with history, culture and adventure, the I&M Canal Heritage Corridor is the perfect destination to play this weekend. Explore the historical significance of the Illinois & Michigan Canal through museums and park exhibits or take a cruise on a real Canal Boat complete with guides dressed in period clothing. Visit the Aviation Museum or learn about Native American life at Isle a la Cache Museum. Take to the open road and travel Illinois Route 66, the Lincoln Highway or Illinois River Road national scenic byways. Tour an expansive collection of murals, sculptures and mosaics in Joliet or take in the floral city of Ottawa, IL. The majestic Rialto Square Theatre attracts big-name musicians and comedians to its stage or one can attend concerts on the hill at Billie Limacher Bicentennial Park Joliet.

Miles of trails along the Illinois & Michigan Canal provide year-round opportunities for biking, hiking, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. Starved Rock, Buffalo Rock, Matthiessen and Channahon State Parks are easily accessible.

The area's golf courses offer a challenge for all skill levels - get a round in at renowned Bolingbrook Golf Club and Pine Hills (Ottawa) or any the other beautifully maintained courses. Experience the heart-pounding thrill of victory at Chicagoland Speedway, Route 66 Raceway and LaSalle Speedway. Harrah's Joliet and Hollywood Joliet Casinos combine the best in gaming, first-class dining, nightlife and entertainment.

Non-stop action and a jam-packed calendar of events and festivals - This is the place to play!
