Illinois

Chicago is one of the first things that people think of when they talk about Illinois. But there is more to this state than the Windy City – or its deep-dish pizza. For one, there are several former US Presidents that hail from Illinois such as Ronald Reagan, Ulysses Grant, and Barack Obama. The Prairie State is also one of the most densely populated states in the US. And despite Chicago being its most famous city, the capital of Illinois is actually Springfield. The marathon events held in Illinois are also one of the main reasons why tourists flock to the state every year. A few of these events are qualifying races for the Boston Marathon.
