A seemingly constant -- and heated, at times --
debate has always taken place between residents of the state of

One thing is for sure, the Land of Lincoln has plenty to offer,
whether one is a resident, a visitor, or someone simply passing
through. There are opportunities a-plenty -- from north to
south and east to west.
The fifth most populated state in the country is
located centrally, offering transportation access by plane or rail
to any other part of the country. There is history galore,
plenty of venues for sports, cultural and ethnic events, and cities
of every size form village-size to the megalopolis of Chicago and
numerous higher institutions of learning.
But the real surprise is the lengthy list of parks and
natural resources and recreational opportunities that available all year
long. Hunting, fishing, boating and other outdoor activities
abound. From small ponds to the Greatest Lake of all: Michigan; the
possibilities are endless. So take a look at what Illinois has to
offer; you won't be disappointed!
