-Peoria is impressive for it's size. It still amazes me that an Interstate run thru it's downtown core,

like you see in bigger cities, with exits to it's downtown streets, etc.

-Joliet downtown is dense, I really like those bridges that cross the Des Plaines River;

they have a unique architecture to them; unusual looking.
