Weekend Getaways in Illinois

By Micheal Yardy Subscribe to RSS | March 14th 2012 | Views:

If you are looking for fun-filled weekend getaway, there are a lot of places to go to in Illinois. With a colorful mix of versatile cultures and outdoor adventures, Illinois can appeal to any traveler seeking a family outing, romantic retreat, or a few casual days with friends. For those of you who might face hard time in deciding what all to visit while in this beautiful state, here are some places that might help make your tour a success:

Route 66 Hall of Fame and Museum, Pontiac-

Exhibiting the unforgettable attractions and the colorful characters of the Mother Road, the Route 66 Hall has flourished a luxury usually only enjoyed by gods and zombies.

World's Largest Cross, Effingham-

Standing at the height of 198 feet and made out of over 200 tons of steel anchored in cement, the "Cross at the Crossroads" was not built for only the religious reasons but to out-size every other huge cross out there, particularly the giant cross in Groom, Texas.

Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, Springfield-

Documenting the course of the American Civil War life and the life of 16th US President Abraham Lincoln, the museum combines traditional scholarship with showmanship techniques of 21st century. It is also ranked as one of the most visited libraries in the United States and is operated by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency.

Historic Auto Attractions, Roscoe-

The Historic Auto Attractions is a history, automobile and pop culture museum, known for its remarkable collection of object d'art associated with the assignation of John F. Kennedy. Opened in 2002, it is owned by native racecar owner Wayne Lensing.

Two-Story Outhouse, Gays-

To some, the Two - Story Outhouse might sound like a joke but the people of its town consider it historic and worthy of civic pride. Built by Samuel Gammill in early 19th century, the outhouse stands on a patch of green grass in a little park, ready to dazzle you through its long run in the history.

So these were some of the notable weekend getaways in Illinois. Some other locations worthy of an honorable mention include Captured Leg of Santa Anna in Springfield, World's Largest Catsup Bottle in Collinsville and the Hometown of Superman and Super Museum in Metropolis - a trip to those and you'll be done with your quota of vacations for the whole September.

Car Hire from America Car Rental becomes essential if you want to visit some or all these Illinois tourist attractions. You can also contact tour operators in your area to get more information on the best time of the year to visit these vacationer places.
