where to visit in Illinois

I am wanting to visit Chicago next month and I was just wondering if there was any other surrounding towns worth visiting. I have recently seen pictures of Galena which looks a nice place - am I able to get a train here? Thanks.

http://www.enjoyillinois.com/home.aspx is a good site to research.

A car is best to get to Galena. http://www.visitgalena.org/index.cfm

If you want to see Illinois by train, your best bet is to take it to Springfield (the state capitol) to explore sights related to Abraham Lincoln, probably our most honored president. And even then you may feel a need to take a taxi to get between the sites within the city.



On the whole, be aware that outside of the hearts of our big cities (or flying between them) the US is not a very easy place to get around by public transportation. We are an auto addicted society.
