Have you been to Illinois? Was it for work, travel, living or vacation? What is your favorite memory of Illinois? If you haven't been, do you want to go?

I was born and raised in IL and lived there until about a month ago (I did move out of state to Missouri for about 6 months in 2004). I've lived all over the state....about 60 miles west of Chicago, near the southern tip at the edge of the Shawnee National Forest, right smack dab in the middle of the state and then the St. Louis area where I spent the last 6 years of my life before moving to MS. My favorite memory spans over 2 years and that was going to NIU for college. I had the time of my life there. The friends I made are still some of my best friends. I'm going to visit one of them at the end of the month. She lives just south of Chicago.

Another one born & raised in Illinois! I was born in Springfield, but lived in a town 45 minutes from there called Jacksonville, until I was 11. We then moved 2.5 hours south to a small town called Salem, and I've been here ever since!

I have family there. My dad was raised there and I lived there for about 2 -3 years I think. I was like 2ish. My family is in Rockford, North of Chicago.

My favorite memory is when I was little, my cousins have a house that has a third floor that was rented out and once it was vacant and we pretended there were ghost... it was so much fun.

We'd like to go to Chicago. It's the new New York.
