Tons of Illinoisans know there’s beauty in the Prairie State, but how does it compare to others?

A TikToker who dubs himself “America’s biggest fan” is setting out to rank every state by its natural beauty, and although Mega American hasn’t revealed the full list yet, we know where Illinois makes the list: Illinois ranks No. 41, according to the TikToker. Here’s what we know so far, as of Wednesday morning (October 27):

  • 41: Illinois
  • 42: Mississippi
  • 43: Ohio
  • 44: Connecticut
  • 45: Delaware
  • 46: Indiana
  • 47: Kansas
  • 48: Oklahoma
  • 49: Nebraska
  • 50: Iowa

We might not know the full rankings yet, but residents and visitors know that Illinois has tons to offer. In fact, Chicago ranked as the Best Big City in the U.S. for the fifth consecutive year, according to Conde Nast Traveler. Here’s why the Windy City stood out:

“It's no wonder Chicago is topping this list yet again. A world-class destination known for its impressive architecture, first-rate museums, brilliant chefs, and massive brewing scene, it’ll take several repeat visits to get through your list of must-dos. Most people start downtown—from the Magnificent Mile to the ritzy Gold Coast to funky Old Town—but there are 77 neighborhoods to explore, where you'll find cutting-edge restaurants, chilled-out corner bars, and, no matter where you go, some of the most pleasant people you'll find anywhere.”
