Along the way, enjoy all that summer in Illinois has to offer. Swimming holes, rivers, the Lakefront Trail, the chirps of the cicada, the thrill of urban centers like Chicago, Peoria and Springfield, alongside the peacefulness of the countryside, home to festivals that feature crafters, flea markets, antiques and even homemade foods.  The only limit on what you can see and do is your imagination.
