Illinois may be referred to as the Prairie State; however, it is also known for having a large number of freshwater lakes and rivers that are ideal for boating. Whether you buy a center console boat that is equipped for fishing on Lake Michigan or a bowrider to cruise on the Illinois River, there are plenty of boating options available in Illinois.
Think the skyline views are great from Lakeshore Drive? Try seeing them from Lake Michigan on a ship straight out of a pirate movie. Or during a sunset cruise down the Chicago River. Suddenly, Chicago seems even more stunning.
