The Illinois Department of Commerce's Office of Tourism highlighted attractions in Casey and Firefly Grill in Effingham as of part Illinois Made.
Launched in July, Illinois Made is an ongoing program that recognizes the artisans, products and experiences that are unique to the state. The program offers Illinois Made-inspired travel ideas all in one place at www.EnjoyIllinois.com/Illinoismade to encourage people to extend their travel beyond a day trip by exploring the local businesses and attractions nearby.
From craft brewers and independent coffee roasters, to custom canoe makers and woodworking journeymen, Illinois features craftspeople proud to call the Land of Lincoln home and Illinois Made is a way for them to be recognized.
Illinois Director of Tourism Cory Jobe made stops Friday in Casey to recognize Jim Bolin for all of the community's "World's Biggest" attractions and in Effingham at Firefly Grill to recognize owners Niall and Kristie Campbell for their farm-to-table menu.
