If you don’t know where to start or which area to choose, no worries, we have you covered. Here are three trip ideas you can plan today:

The First Hundred Miles of Route 66

The Mother Road. America's Main Street. Route 66. The road that symbolizes freedom and the days of cruising from Chicago to LA, stopping and mom and pop diners, roadside attractions, and stores of every variety.

I&M Canal Towns 

The Illinois and Michigan Canal played a huge part in forming today's midwestern cities, from Lemont down to LaSalle, the history is celebrated daily.

Starved Rock Country

A visit to Starved Rock State Park consists of many sights to behold, including breathtaking views of its many canyons and awe-inspiring scenes of eagles flying during the winter month. The area known as Starved Rock Country contains so much more!
