Group Description

About Enjoy Illinois

Enjoy Illinois is a group created by the Illinois Office of Tourism, to showcase our amazing state as only Illinois travelers can. While we are proud to be known as the "Land of Lincoln," there is so much more to enjoy in Illinois and the best way to communicate that is through your photos. From Springfield and Carbondale to Galena and Moline, Illinois’ beauty is as diverse as the people who live here. We invite you to enjoy mile after magnificent mile in Illinois.

Please submit what you think showcases Illinois’ beauty best, particularly our state parks, hidden towns/attractions and other and interesting “offbeat” destinations, for inclusion within the group.

Photos submitted to the group could be featured on the Enjoy Illinois Travel Web site as well as on desktops, screensavers and other electronic media. (We will always ask for your permission before using your photos beyond Flickr)

Group Rules

Please tag all of your photos with “Enjoy Illinois” and “Illinois travel.” Additionally, we would love it (to the best of your ability) if you could also tag your photos with the location and description of the image. Geotagging is also welcome and encouraged!

As with many groups, please stick to adding three images at a time to allow for other members to upload his/her images. This helps keep variety in the group.

There is no limit to the amount of photos you can upload in a day; however, please be considerate and allow others to add their photos.

Image Content
Any photos that are inappropriate for the group will be removed, without notice, by the Enjoy Illinois team.
