Bob Chins Crabhouse - Wheeling, IL

Great place for seafood. When I flew to PWK a FBO kindly taxied us to and from Bob Chins, located roughly 1 mile north of the airport. ENJOY!

CJ's Restaurant and Catering - Bloomington, IL

CJ's is in the old terminal building at the Bloomington airport where Arnie's used to be. Only 50 feet from the ramp to the restaurant door. Great food and terrific service. Plus a great view of the airport. You do not have to pass through any type of security to get into the restaurant, either from the ramp or the parking lot, since there are no airline flights from this building. A really great place to fly to for a meal. The city has put a lot of money into the airport, with new runways and taxiways, so it's very modern but still small enough to be manageable. Plus, the BMI controllers are always terrific. You won't be disappointed here.

Heritage in Flight - WWII Aero Museum - Lincoln, IL

The museum is housed in a World War II German POW barracks that was in a POW camp near Macomb, Illinois called Camp Ellis. The contents of the HIF Museum include memorabilia and artifacts from all of the military conflicts dating back to World War I. On display are mementos donated by veterans and those on the home front. Various military branches have also donated many aircraft and other military vehicles that are located outside the museum. The rotating beacon at the Logan County Airport (AAA) was part of the lighted airway system route from St. Louis to Chicago. This was the route that Charles Lindbergh flew as an airmail pilot. This is an old museum that is being updated by volunteers (so donations are greatly appreciated) .
