Welcome to Central Illinois!  

In fact, from Peoria to Bloomington/Normal to Champaign/Urbana to Danville - you will be welcomed with that special heartland hospitality.  Whether your are traveling on I-74 or the backroads, you will find interesting places and events to make your trip a memorable one.  A young attorney on the eighth judicial circuit, Abraham Lincoln, always enjoyed his visits here and we're sure you will too.

Summer is a special time in Central Illinois.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing and everyone is saying, "Come outside and play!"  Fairs and festivals abound in every community.  Performing and visual arts are on display, inside and out.  Parks offer a place to relax and enjoy life with hiking, fishing, swimming, boating and wildlife-watching.

Traveling has always been a passion in our family.  Thank you for allowing us to suggest ways for you to enjoy the wonders Central Illinois has to offer during your travels.  Happy Traveling!
