Staycations in East Central Illinois
WILL-AM's Focus host Jim Meadows explores east central Illinois … from the perspective of a tourist. Sue Post, author of Hiking Illinois, will be here to tell us about some scenic, and maybe unexpected, places in the area to enjoy the outdoors and will talk with us about what makes hiking in Illinois unique. We’ll also talk with her about native wildlife of note.
Then during the second half of the hour, we’ll talk with Heather Wilkins, director for the Land of Lincoln Regional Tourism Office, about Illinois trails. These Trails don’t have much to do with hiking, but they’re just as scenic. We’ll talk about where you can go to visit every from Illinois’ most historic drive-in movie theaters to the oldest soda fountains and the world’s largest golf tee and covered wagon.
