Perhaps the most varied of the state’s six regions, 14-county Northern Illinois stretches across the top, from the fringe of the Chicago suburbs westward to the Mississippi River boundary with Iowa. In between you’ll find state parks, historic towns, and—surrounded by an ocean of farmland—the largest city in Illinois beyond Chicagoland: Rockford.

The major arteries in Northern Illinois are: (1) U.S. Highway 14, (2) Interstate 90 and U.S. Highway 20, (3) Illinois Highway 64, (4) Interstate 88, and (5) Interstate 80.
