Illinois Mini Guide

You will certainly need a hire car in the Midwestern state of Illinois as it is relatively empty, and the distances are large. Illinois is mostly made up of farmland and if you access the state via the interstate 80 road coming from Iowa you are sure to see many fields. Other routes into Illinois are from Indiana and the interstates 70, 74 and 80 or via the interstates 90 and 94 through Wisconsin. As you get closer to Chicago you will find that many of the roads are toll roads. Chicago is the largest settlement in Illinois and one of the world’s most underrated cities which has art, culture and architecture to compare with anywhere else in the world.
