Home to Chicago and therefore the de-facto capital of culture for the Midwest, Illinois is much more than its most famous city. Yes, of course, many visitors flock here for the Windy City and its art museums, architecture, blues clubs, comedy shows, and deep-dish pizza, but the rest of the state offers plenty in terms of history, culture, and the great outdoors. Explore the charms of smaller towns like Galena and Evanston, see the houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in Oak Park, and learn what makes this the "Land of Lincoln" in Springfield.
