    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    One of the most agriculturaly and demographically diverse Midwestern state in America is Illinois. Home to such cities as Chicago, Springfield and Peoria, the state is known for being rich in natural resources such as coal and wood, and the Port Chicago connects to the Great Lakes via the Mississippi River, making it an economical hub for the central region of the United States. Chicago is the third largest city in the nation, and the state itself is known as the Prairie State, due to the majority of the state being made of wide open plains of farmland that has become known as the Heart of Illinois.

    At first glance, Illinois might appear to offer very little in terms of reasons to visit, but the truth of the matter is that the state is rich in history, although it might be lacking in terms of natural beauty. For example, Cahokia is the site of a prehistoric Native American city, one of only eight UNESCO World Heritage sites in the United States, compared to the hundreds spread around the world. The Lewis and Clark Trail goes through Illinois, and the capital of Springfield not only boasts the capital building but Abraham Lincoln's tomb and his home, as well as the old State Capitol. Then there's Chicago herself, which is one of the world's most well-known cities, famous for its deep dish pizza and blues music scene.

    Illinois is packed with museums and historical buildings showcasing American history, but the state also has two major league baseball teams: the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox. In addition, the Chicago Bears are an NFL team, and their basketball team, the Chicago Bulls, is one of the most well-known basketball teams in the world. The Chicago Blackhawks recently won the NHL's Stanley Cup. There are dozens of national parks and within the state as well, making for a diverse experience regardless of what time of year you happen to travel.
