Peoria may be the headquarters for Caterpillar, but when you need a smaller vehicle, you can trust Budget for rental cars for the family. The city also has an important aviation heritage, as Charles Lindbergh flew his first air mail route with a stop in Peoria, Illinois between Chicago and the state capital Springfield.
Springfield was shaped early on by then-State Congressman Lincoln and later by General Grant in the Civil War. At the turn of the century, Frank Lloyd Wright then made an architectural impression on the Illinois capital. Guests can still visit the Dana-Thomas House after a short drive from Lincolns Home in Springfield with a rental car from Budget.
Fans of the comedy duo Wayne's World will remember Aurora, Illinois as their fictional home, though the area is perhaps better known to neighbors for the local casino that has revitalized downtown. Aurora is a small town with lots of fun activities in store, so be sure to bring the whole team along with a rental minivan or full-size sedan. Architectural wonders, historic landmarks, and entertainment are all within reach with Illinois car rental from Budget.
