What are the most unique towns in Illinois?

Sometimes, the tiny towns in Illinois can be hiding unique surprises. For example, Olney, Illinois has a population of around 8,700 residents and another special population of albino squirrels. The town is known for its strikingly white squirrels, though they are becoming rarer over time. If you want to feel like you’ve been shrunk down to the size of a squirrel, visit Casey, Illinois. This quirky town of around 3,000 residents boasts of having many of the “world’s largest” everyday objects. World’s largest knitting needles, pencil, rocking chair, pitchfork… the list goes on. They’re absolutely massive and surely make it a unique destination in the Land of Lincoln!

Are there any nostalgic stores in Illinois?

If you enjoy old general stores like this one, there are more in Illinois to visit for some nostalgia. The General Store in Greenwood, Illinois has many cute things to browse and a bakery with wonderful treats to enjoy. The 1904 General Store, located in Alton, was originally built for the 1904 World’s Fair and is still selling gifts, candy, and the tastiest fudge you’ll ever try. Plus, how cool would it be to visit a place from the World’s Fair over 100 years ago?
