If museums and architecture are not enough to sate your love for all things historical, how about heading to Illinois, and visit the magnificent Cahokia Mounds? This State Historic Site is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is known as the largest prehistoric city north of Mexico.
Located in the Saint Louis Metro East region of Illinois, the Cahokia Mounds is a popular attraction for mini bus rental visitors. This city was at its peak 800 years ago, where American Indians farmed, traded, created art, studied the sun, and built massive earthen mounds. Charter bus visitors can view the remaining 69 man-made mounds at this area with the largest being the Monks Mounds, approximately 100 feet tall.
A few types of tours are available at the site, so coach bus visitors got the freedom to choose whether to opt for a public tour, or self-guided ones.
If this is your first time visiting the Cahokia Mounds, you might want to take note of some useful information to assist you in your visit.
