Overview

“The Land of Lincoln,” Illinois is a state of firsts: the first to ratify the 13th amendment, the first to install electric street lighting throughout an entire city, and the first to build a skyscraper.

The third most populated city in America, Chicago is Illinois’s cultural hub. Home to hearty deep dish pizza, historic Wrigley Field, and the famous Second City Theater, it’s no wonder Frank Sinatra called the city “My Kind of Town.”
