I&M Canal

A mid-1800’s architectural wonder helped make Chicago the city it is today.  The 96-mile Illinois & Michigan Canal (I&M Canal) connected the Great Lakes in Bridgeport, Chicago to the Illinois River at LaSalle-Peru. 

This “highway” allowed for many cities along the Canal to come to life.  And today, these cities blend history with a modern sophistication that will definitely make for a delightful trip.  With delightful restaurants like Tallgrass Restaurant in Lockport, IL and Nick’s Tavern in Lemont, IL, boutique shops like Betty’s in Morris, IL and Cattails at Starved Rock Marketplace in Utica, IL, and excitement like SkyDive Chicago in Ottawa, IL and Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, IL, a visit to the I&M Canal will be an experience to remember.
