On behalf of the Illinois Office of Tourism and Tour Illinois, I invite you and your group to enjoy the amazing state of Illinois.
A state immersed in cultural and natural richness, Illinois is an ideal destination for groups of all shapes and sizes. Whether you prefer the world-class culture and the variety of dining options in Chicago, the friendly hospitality of small towns and farm-to-table dining, following in Lincoln’s footsteps, or the serene beauty of our natural wonders, you’ll find what you’re looking for in Illinois. From top-notch sporting events to endless shopping, it’s all here.
Take in Chicago’s finest with visits to the Magnificent Mile, Millennium Park, Broadway in Chicago and the Museum Campus. Relive the adventure of the open road along historic Route 66. Delight in historic towns and striking views along the Great River Road. Make a splash at a water park resort. Take a legendary look at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and historic sites. Get lost in our architectural wonders along the Illinois Frank Lloyd Wright Trail. And make sure to stop at one of our many group-friendly breweries, distilleries and wineries.
Illinois is a four-season destination. Our winter eagle watching season offers unique views of one of the largest eagle migrations in the nation. Spring and summer offer travelers the opportunity to enjoy Illinois’ scenic byways, sandy beaches and state parks. Beautiful fall colors are on display each autumn with some of the most spectacular landscapes anywhere in the country and unique events to match.
We are proud to call Illinois home, and look forward to the opportunity to have you as our guest. The Illinois Office of Tourism and Tour Illinois are here to help you plan a memorable trip.
