In the middle of March 2020 the Covid-19 pandemic exploded and the tourism industry came to a grinding halt. The Mythic Mississippi Project rose to the challenge by seizing the opportunity to “go virtual” by means of this rich website, which can be used for virtual tourism and in-person tourism (see the announcement by Governor J.B. Pritzker on May 12, 2021).
We encourage you to enjoy Illinois cultural heritage and history at the many sites we highlight on the website by using this website.
FROM ARMCHAIR TRAVEL TO VIRTUAL TOURISM TO “REAL” TOURISM.
USE OUR WEBSITE TO ENHANCE YOUR VISITS.
All of the project’s digital resources are available to use as a complement to physical travel so as to have an enriched experience at the sites our project has targeted for attention.
