Western Illinois is a region of Illinois generally bounded by the Mississippi River to the west, I-80 to the north and I-39/I-55 to the east. It has two major anchors: Peoria and the Illinois side of the Quad Cities. Being culturally similar to Central Illinois, they are sometimes presented together as the same region.
