We're on the road again, Cruisin' the great state of Illinois. Our own Julian Crews is leading the excursion.
This week, we're searching for Illinois natural wonders. From 6 and a half miles of undeveloped Lake Michigan Shoreline in Zion to the Shawnee National forest, there are beautiful places to visit in Illinois.
And there are cultural treasures as well, in the Southern Illinois town of Murphysboro. The General John A Logan museum is holding a series of new exhibits on the Civil War.
