Great sports teams.
Great campgrounds.
Outdoor activities.
Many different cultures, meaning the people are different south of Hwy 90, south of I-10 and north of I-10.
Did I mention the FOOD.
Truly is a great state to live in.

The bad is our roads and the humidity, but we keep it that way on purpose. If we fixed it everyone would live here.
Yep! That is why we keep the roads like they are.
Our men sweat...and women "glow".
Oh, forgot to mention our Food! The best in the in the world!

Ya know I was trying to think of what makes Illinois great. Oh and there no nois in Illinois loose the "S" when pronouncing the word.

The southern part of the state has a few nice places, but Im from the northern part. So I will speak to the top side of the land of Lincoln.

Agree, the BEST PIZZA in the USA and maybe the world. (from my travels)
Nothing beats a Chicago deep-dish or pan pizza!
Agree ,best hotdogs are a Chicago style dog!

Now , we do have a great state for sports. We have Da Bears ,Cubs , Bulls and of course the BLACKHAWKS! Yeah that other team too....
One of our teams is always a contender. Hawks and Bulls are having a good season right now. The Blackhawks and its fans do the BEST rendition of the National Anthem hands down! Brings a tear to my eye every time Im at the Madhouse on Madison for a game and makes me proud to be an American! Wrigley Field, the worlds largest beer garden.

If you cant make it in Chicago land, well you probably cant make it anywhere.
Chicago is the hub of the midwest and the nation, thus we have jobs.

Again I agree, the politician usually serve their term if they are lucky and then go to jail. We are a very corrupt state and broke too!

The state does not invest in it's State parks and forest. Most all state parks are under staffed and way underfunded.
We do have Wisconsin and Michigan close by and they have great state parks!
Yes, they may call us FIB's but we can take it
So dont start making your vacation plans to come here any time soon. It will be disappointing. Good for a layover on a trip someplace else.

That's Illinois

There are numerous other modern attractions here, and I'm sure others will list them. Additionally, our temperate climate allows for camping year-round, as long as you're not planning to camp THIS week.

Also, we have the largest natural-habitat zoo in the U.S. and the first state-supported university in the nation.
Grandfather Mountain and it's Mile high swinging bridge. the mysterious Brown mountain lights. Biltmore Estate, Blowing rock, Hooker falls you can swim at these and even jump off the falls) Charlotte has nascar hall of fame, Michael waltrip's shop has one of the best tours around taking you down where the pit crew practices and the race cars are built. For the kids in Charlotte you have lazy 5 ranch (I recommend taking the wagon ride safari instead of driving because animals will rub against your car and steal your feeding buckets) and the discovery place kids museum. In Chapel hill we have UNC. Nearby in Durham, there is duke university with the famous Duke chapel and sara duke gardens. There is also the Duke homestead. Close to Durham is Raleigh. Raleigh has marbles museum, museum of natural science, museum of history. Jordan lake state park is close to Raleigh. If you want an rv resort in the raleigh durham area, best is in mebane (jones station rv resort) but it is 30 min from durham and 50 min from Raleigh. At the outer banks you have the Wright brothers museum. You have the wild horses in corolla and so much more.

Lots of good state parks in NC and some good rv resorts as well. We can camp year round here but Jan and February and sometimes March are when we usually start to see some really cold temps and snow (it was 15 degrees today and we still have Some ice covered roads from the snowstorm earlier this week). On the downside it gets really hot and humid in the summer and the no-see-ums can get really annoying. Other downside is state parks lock their gates at dusk so you have to be back by then.

Oh I forgot about the BBQ. We have vinegar based sauce in eastern NC, in the middle of the state we have Lexington style which is a combo of vinegar and tomato based, as you go farther west, it is tomato based sauce.

Georgia. Our State Parks will take you down to canyons up to mountains and across to the ocean.

Nothing to see in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Move along...

I'm a little too truthful, I guess.
