I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I've worked in the entertainment industry for much of my adult life and I love photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world! Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream.
There are plenty of ways to explore the Land of Lincoln, especially via one of the state’s spectacular scenic backroads. And according to MSN’s Scenic U.S. road trips to discover this year, the Great River Road National Scenic Byway is one of the best scenic drives you can take in the country. Traveling along the Mississippi River, this is also the most stunning scenic drive in Illinois.
