Starved Rock Wins State Tourism Contest

Posted by wlpo on June 18, 2012

The people have spoken and Starved Rock State Park is the favorite tourist attraction in Illinois.

Voting ended last night in the Enjoy Illinois’ Facebook contest with Starved Rock getting well over 60 percent of the vote to beat the Museum of Science and Industry.  The online voting contest put 64 top tourist attractions in a tournament with Starved Rock coming out on top at the end.

Besides bragging rights for Starved Rock, you had the chance to win weekend getaways to Chicago, Galena and Springfield if you voted.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
