Tourists and residents in search of a close-by getaway often head to the Illinois & Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor and nearby Illinois/Des Plaines River. State parks, forest preserves, fish and wildlife areas, hiking trails, canoe routes and more can be found along this unique river route. Joliet is a primary starting point for trips up and down the river. The communities along the canal corridor each hold annual summer festivals and outdoor events that draw visitors from across the region.
