Illinois is a state that is filled with historical landmarks and modern attractions. While vacationing in Illinois, you can visit the hometown of one of our greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln and see the tallest building in the United States, Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower). There is so much to see and do in downtown Chicago, the country’s second largest urban center, so it may take a handful of family vacations to see it all.
