Illinois is as diverse a state as its cities and people. Located in the heartland of America, the Land of Lincoln may have cultivated a reputation as one of the worst run states, but it still remains a great choice for anyone looking to put down roots.
Unemployment rate is one of the major causes of the high migration rates out of the state in recent years, but Illinois continues to prove its economic resilience. Illinois is also home to dozens of cities with revitalized downtowns, excellent entertainment venues and endless outdoor recreation opportunities.
Universities in the state are on the leading edge of research and several of them, including the University of Illinois (Champaign Urbana) and Northwestern University,
are among the only 108 institutions nationally classified as “Very High Research Activity” on the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.
In the heart of the Midwest, Illinois has some crazy weather. The winters are harsh, the summers are hot, and several different seasons can show their face in a single day.
Every Illinoisan knows the importance of learning how to drive in snow and knows how to survive if their city gets shut down for a couple days.
Here are the 10 best places (cities and towns) to live in Illinois for 2018:
3. Buffalo Grove.
6. Highland Park.
9. Park Ridge.

California Citrus: A Cultural Tale of California’s Citrus Industry
California Citrus State Historic Park in Riverside, CA beautifully preserves one of Southern California’s important historical, cultural and agricultural contributions: citrus farming. In 1873, California’s citrus industry took off when the United States Department of Agriculture mailed two Washington Navel orange trees to Eliza Tibbets, one of the early settlers and founders of Riverside. Word quickly spread of how these trees, coupled with perfect soil and weather conditions in Southern California, produced a sweet and flavorful fruit.
By 1893, Riverside was the wealthiest city per capita in the United States and dozens of new citrus growing communities were created around it – including Rialto, Fontana, Bloomington, Redlands, Loma Linda & South Riverside (now Corona). Citrus farmers flocked to California in what became known as the “Second Gold Rush” and by 1901, there were a staggering 4.5-million citrus trees in California. The industry required a large workforce and immigrant workers quickly filled the need. Native California Indians were among the first to farm the new California Gold,” but anti-Native American sentiment resulted in a decline in the workforce. The Native Americans were mostly replaced by Chinese immigrants, but soon enough – thanks to anti-Chinese sentiment & The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 – they too were replaced. This time, Japanese immigrants filled the void and became the largest of any labor group in the entire citrus industry. However, once again, anti-Japanese sentiment in the United States soon forced them out and they were eventually replaced by Hispanic immigrants.
In the 1920’s, the Cristero War in Mexico – spawned by the imposition of secularist and anti-Catholic articles in Mexico’s Constitution – resulted in hundreds of thousands of Mexican citizens immigrating to the United States. They quickly filled the void in California’s citrus industry and soon enough they became the largest labor group in the entire industry. For a small $5 entry fee, you can explore California State Historic Park for yourself and learn more about these immigrant work group’s contribution to Southern California’s cultural and agricultural heritage.

Buffalos, Hayden Valley, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, United States, North America
The American bison, also commonly known as the American buffalo, is a North American species of bison that once roamed the grasslands of North America in massive herds, became nearly extinct by a combination of commercial hunting and slaughter in the 19th century and introduction of bovine diseases from domestic cattle, and has made a recent resurgence largely restricted to a few national parks and reserves. Their historical range roughly comprised a triangle between the Great Bear Lake in Canada's far northwest, south to the Mexican states of Durango and Nuevo León, and east to the Atlantic Seaboard of the United States (nearly to the Atlantic tidewater in some areas) from New York to Georgia and per some sources down to Florida. Two subspecies or ecotypes have been described: the plains bison (Bison bison bison), smaller in size and with a more rounded hump, and the wood bison (Bison bison athabascae) the larger of the two and having a taller, square hump. Furthermore, it has been suggested that the plains bison consists of a northern (Bison bison montanae) and a southern subspecies, bringing the total to three. However, this is generally not supported. The wood bison is one of the largest wild species of bovid in the world, surpassed by only the Asian gaur and wild water buffalo. It is the largest extant land animal in the Americas. A bison has a shaggy, long, dark brown winter coat, and a lighter weight, lighter brown summer coat. As is typical in ungulates, the male bison are slightly larger than the female and, in some cases, can be considerably heavier. Plains bison are often in the smaller range of sizes, and Wood bison in the larger range. Head-and-body length ranges from 2 to 3.5 m (6.6 to 11.5 ft) long, the tail adding 30 to 91 cm (12 to 36 in). Shoulder height in the species can range from 152 to 186 cm (60 to 73 in). Typical weight can range from 318 to 1,000 kg (701 to 2,205 lb). The heaviest wild bull ever recorded weighed 1,270 kg (2,800 lb). When raised in captivity and farmed for meat, the bison can grow unnaturally heavy and the largest semi-domestic bison weighed 1,724 kg (3,801 lb). The heads and forequarters are massive, and both sexes have short, curved horns that can grow up to 2 feet (61 cm) long, which they use in fighting for status within the herd and for defense. Bison are herbivores, grazing on the grasses and sedges of the North American prairies. Their daily schedule involves two-hour periods of grazing, resting and cud chewing, then moving to a new location to graze again. Bison mate in August and September; gestation is 285 days. A single reddish-brown calf nurses until the next calf is born. If the cow is not pregnant, a calf will nurse for 18 months. At three years of age, bison cows are mature enough to produce a calf. Bison bulls of that age may try to mate with cows, but if more mature bulls are present, they may not be able to compete until they reach five years of age. Bison have a life expectancy of approximately 15 years in the wild and up to 25 years in captivity. For the first two months of life, calves are lighter in color than mature bison. One very rare condition is the white buffalo, in which the calf turns entirely white. White bison are considered sacred by many Native Americans. The term buffalo is sometimes considered to be a misnomer for this animal, as it is only distantly related to either of the two true buffalo, the Asian water buffalo and the African buffalo. However, bison is a Greek word meaning ox-like animal, while buffalo originated with the French fur trappers who called these massive beasts bœufs, meaning ox or bullock so both names, bison and buffalo, have a similar meaning. Though the name Bison might be considered to be more scientifically correct, as a result of standard usage the name Buffalo is also considered correct and is listed in many dictionaries as an acceptable name for American Buffalo or bison. In reference to this animal, the term buffalo, dates to 1625 in North American usage when the term was first recorded for the American mammal. It thus has a much longer history than the term bison, which was first recorded in 1774. The American bison is very closely related to the wisent or European bison. American bison live in river valleys, and on prairies and plains. Typical habitat is open or semi-open grasslands, as well as sagebrush, semi-arid lands and scrublands. Some lightly wooded areas are also known historically to have supported bison. Bison will also graze in hilly or mountainous areas where the slopes are not steep. Though not particularly known as high altitude animals, bison in the Yellowstone Park bison herd are frequently found at elevations above 8,000 feet and the Henry Mountains bison herd is found on the plains around the Henry Mountains, Utah, as well as in mountain valleys of the Henry Mountains to an altitude of 10,000 feet.
