I&M Canal Accommodations

A mid-1800’s architectural wonder helped make Chicago the city it is today. The 96-mile Illinois & Michigan Canal (I&M Canal) connected the Great Lakes in Bridgeport, Chicago to the Illinois River at LaSalle-Peru.

This “highway” allowed for many cities along the Canal to come to life. And today, these cities blend history with a modern sophistication and authnetic charm that will definitely make for a delightful trip. With delightful restaurants like Tallgrass Restaurant (Lockport, IL) and Nick’s Tavern (Lemont, IL), boutique shops like Betty’s (Morris, IL) and Weeta's Boutique  (Ottawa, IL), and excitement like The Forge: Lemont Quarries (Lemont, IL) and Chicagoland Speedway (Joliet, IL), a visit to the I&M Canal will be an experience to remember.
