Illinois – The Middle of Everything!
When you take an escorted tour through Illinois, you’ll find it is in the middle. The middle of the Midwest. In the middle of the United States. Look deeper, and you’ll find the view from the middle is astonishing. Illinois is the center of culture, food, history, architecture, nightlife and natural wonders and just full of experiences for visitors to discover. Surrounded by rising stars, Michelin Stars and actual stars.
Then there is the music. Everyone knows about the Chicago blues, be it through music giants like Bo Diddley and Muddy Waters or legendary venues like Kingston Mines and The House of Blues. However, Illinois’s contributions to music go much further. Illinois has a vibrant and diverse musical heritage, which continues to this day, as it hosts a premier multi-day rock festival, Lollapalooza, and the Chicago House Music Festival, celebrating a genre of electronic music that it popularized in the early 1980s. As Frank Sinatra famously sang, “On State Street, that great street I just want to say, they do things that they don’t do on Broadway.”
Take an Escorted Tour through Illinois and find yourself in the middle of everything.
