Mark Illinois as your next trip

January 31st is National Plan for Vacation Day! Celebrated annually on the last Tuesday of January, NPVD is a day to encourage people to plan their vacation days for the whole year at the beginning of the year. Not only does NPVD inspire us to explore the USA, but it also highlights the importance of personal wellbeing and overall economic prosperity.

This year, plan a trip to the "Middle of Everything!" From boat rides on Lake Michigan to culinary experts in the city, Illinois is home to many exciting destinations. We've compiled a list of attractions and trails we think you should try. Here are some ways for you and your family to explore the Heritage Corridor. You can find each of these activities in detail in our Heritage Corridor VisitWidget app. Just click the icon on the right side of the screen to get started, or open the Heritage Corridor app on your phone.
