Illinois was my introduction to the Midwest. The classic American road trip, Route 66 starts in Chicago, Illinois! Little did I know that just 5 years later, Chicago would become my adopted ‘home’ airport! Illinois; population is just over 12.6 million. Summers are hot and the winters bring freezing temperatures and snow. Here are all my Illinois posts, arranged by town (or city!) for your ease!

🍽Eat at The Rafters Restaurant in Lena
