became the 21st state admitted to the Union on
December 3, 1818. The northern part of the state
is made up of the Chicago metropolitan area,
which is very populated and industrialized. The
central part of the state is known as "The Heart
of Illinois," and is full of small towns and
mid-sized cities, with mostly prairie land. The
southern part of the state is more rugged in
its land features, as well as more populated
then the middle section of the state. Illinois
is known for it's agricultural production of
soybeans and corn, among other important crops.
If you are looking for some educational family
trips, fly over to Chicago and invest time into
looking at the wide variety of museums, some of
which are considered the best in the world.
These include the Field Museum of Natural
History, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the
John G. Shedd Aquarium.
Illinois has plenty of everything for a pilot to
look for in real estate. Beauty and serenity
make up the area in the middle section of the
state, providing scenic and peaceful flights
over Springfield, Peoria and other cities. The
northern section of the state provides a much
faster lifestyle, while the spirit of
and the clean city will keep you transfixed on
its perfection. Take a flight over the southern
part of the state to enjoy the more mountainous
region, and end the flight with many images
still in your mind of the land. Illinois is a
great place to consider for buying a home, don't
miss out on the opportunity.
