Illinois might not be the official ‘City of Lights,’ but with the amount of classic neon signs lighting up the night sky, it might as well be! This week, we asked our Instagram followers to share photos of their favorite neon signs across Illinois. You can check out a few of our favorite shots from around the state below. Be sure to follow us on Instagram for upcoming weekly challenges. Remember to share your best photos with us by tagging #EnjoyIllinois and your photo could be featured!
