Illinois - As the “Land of Lincoln,” it comes as no surprise that there are dozens of monuments and historic sites linked to the 16th President of the United States all across Illinois. Aside from being an historically rich region, Illinois has numerous outlets for outdoor activities, including bald eagle sightseeing tours and water sports on its many bodies of water, including the Mississippi River. With over 65% of the state’s population packed into the Chicago area, self storage units come in handy for residents looking to store speedboats and other watercraft for use on nearby Lake Michigan. Around Bloomington and Springfield in central Illinois, vintage car enthusiasts protect their roadsters in self storage facilities after rides down Route 66. In the northwest region, Rockford residents tuck skis away in mini storage facilities when they’re not downhill skiing at the Chestnut Mountain Resort or going cross-country skiing at Starved Rock State Park. Illinois, the U.S.’s fifth-most populous state, has hundreds of self storage facilities to protect both sporting equipment and valuables.
