Illinois Marinas

Whether you're cruising the Illinois River, exploring southern Lake Michigan or visiting Chicago Harbor, Illinois waters are a boater's dream. In the summer, you can catch Chicago Yacht Club's Race to Mackinac (also known as "The Mac") - the oldest and longest freshwater sailing race in the world. For Great Loopers, the Illinois River offers a beautiful passageway to the Mississippi River, with historic Peoria as the largest city along its banks.
