National Park Trip Season 3 (Summer edition) started July 2018!
Illinois State Line Sign was the first state line sign we stopped at on this trip. We will end up getting 12 this year. Which will give us a total of 31 so far. Not too shabby.
This sign was easy to get. It is located on I-80 east coming from Iowa and heading into Illinois. We took the Illinois Rest Area exit and parked the car along the edge of the road and walked over to the sign.
We then pulled into the rest stop for a snack and bathroom break. This was a very scenic and unexpectedly great stop. We walked around and stretched our legs, this was the half way point to our first stop of the trip so this worked out perfect 🙂 If you have a chance I suggest this rest area. Check it out.
National Park Service Sites in this state:
Lincoln Home National Historic Site
Pullman National Monument
We are just passing through Illinois on this trip but I will add these sites when we do stop and visit them. Check back.
