Illinois Trip – Interesting Sights
4-21, 22, 23 – 2014
The destinations on our trip were interesting. Sometimes though, something caught our eye ON THE WAY to each place. As we got near Chicago, I got a great view of O’Hare Airport from the car window. The towns are so close together that usually the best way you know you are passing through another town is the water tower. Here are just a few of them.
Waiting at a stoplight was a car repair shop, with 1/2 a car attached to the wall of the building.
The community of Fox Lake was of enough interest to stop for at least 1/2 hour. They have a Dog and Suds drive-thru, I have been to those in the past near Park Forest. Near there was also the Fox Lake-Grant Township Area Historical Society and the volunteer fire department.
In Mattawa is the historic Adlai Stevenson house. Part of I-55 is named after him in Chicago.
Near Park Forest in University Park, there was a large art display, too large to see the whole thing. It’s the Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park at Governor State University.
There is more to Illinois than meets the eye.
