Anyone spent any time here? I'll be moving here for work in 2 months. Wondering if anyone has any input about the area.

Ooof. At least Chicago is only 3 hours away.

Haven't really been ... but when you get the chance, a trip to Springfield (which isn't that far away) to see the Lincoln Library/Museum is well worth it. And when coming to Chicago, if you can, take the train and avoid driving into the city. We aren't that friendly to outlier drivers.

I think it might actually be Bloomington, not Peoria.

Wherever you end up, make sure you sniff out a restaurant that serves a decent horseshoe. I forget if its an all Illinios thing, or just the central region from when I lived there years and years ago.

My wife says Monocles pizza joint is amazing. She tries to make me drive there every trip to Chicago.

Twins cities. I'm actually in Normal right now and it isn't bad at all. I don't think I'll be looking for a place in the city though, much too expensive and busy. Any opinions on cities to the North? The job is going to be just outside of Minonk if that helps.
