If you are planning a trip to the Chicago area, whether it is just a short jaunt or a long vacation with family and friends, then you might want to consider making a stop in the Illinois area. Illinois is a very diverse state, but has the advantage of being home to some of the country's largest cities, like Chicago, Champaign, Peoria, Bloomington, Normal, Bloomington, and Rockford. But why would you want to go to Illinois?

The town of Crystal Lake is the city of Cook County's second largest. It is also home to the University of Illinois, known for its acclaimed engineering schools. Its location is also interesting; since it is located in the heart of Illinois, Crystal Lake, IL is a good escape from the cities and suburbs that make up the rest of the state. And, of course, with the local universities nearby, it makes for a pretty easy commute.

The Crystal Lake area boasts a wide array of leisure activities for the person who is looking for something different. They have the Blue Lake State Park, which is a part of the Cedar Lake State Natural Area. It is the only artificial lake on the Blue Ridge Mountain and is one of the largest natural lakes in the world.

The surrounding areas have also seen a surge in its tourism economy. Chicago is the largest metropolitan area in the state of Illinois and it is also the eighth most populous city in the entire United States. Because of this, tourism is so common that it is known as "The Big Apple."

Travelers can take bus tours that cover parts of the state. If you are planning a day trip, it is wise to take a tour that covers the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville campus, the Cathedral School of Mass Media, the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, the University of Southern Illinois in Springfield, or other colleges in the area. You can always head to any of the cities listed to experience all that the state has to offer.

Those who have been to the park are likely to enjoy a visit to Crystal Lake State Park. There is plenty to do, such as bird watching, hiking, biking, horseback riding, and a huge beach. You can also take swimming lessons, learn how to play tennis, or even get a kick out of swimming. There are also a lake boat, as well as boat rentals and boat charters.

Because of the popularity of the Cedar Lake State Park, a great deal of tourist traps are located around the park. Just outside the park is the Crystal Lake resort, where many people choose to stay after their vacations. This also offers walking trails. You can stay at the spacious Crystal Lake Resort or you can choose to stay in the hotel's secluded second floor suites.

Since so much of Illinois is mountainous, it makes for a great vacation destination. While in the area, you might also want to check out the Mid-America Outback, a fun-filled adventure that takes you deep into the heart of the Midwest. Just do some research about the area before making your choice of a vacation spot.
