Illinois is a mid-west state, bordering Indiana in the east and the Mississippi River in the west with most of our villas conveniently located in Chicago. Known as the `Prairie State`, it is marked by farmland, forest, rolling hills and wetlands.
The State is famous for having three presidents elected whilst living there - Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S Grant and most recently Barack Obama. Chicago is a great starting point to explore Route 66, Mississippi River Country, presidential history, and other Illinois attractions that reveal the American way of life.
Chicago benefits from great transportation links, air, sea, rail and road are well catered for, making it easy to find your way around and see all the sights in the city. It has something for everyone; outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy sailing, canoeing or swimming in the clear waters of Lake Michigan. Shoppers can enjoy Magnificent Mile, where you can find everything from designer boutiques to outlet malls, or for the whole family there is the Lincoln Park Zoo.
