Boyd PalmerOttawa, Illinois, a rural community 70 miles Southwest of Metro Chicago, linked by Interstate highways I-80 and I-39 and nestled between the Fox and the mighty Illinois rivers is, to those of us that live and work here, a big place in terms of natural beauty, quality of life, and a close-knit community.

We also understand the challenges faced by any community, be it rural or urban, and the Ottawa Area Chamber of Commerce & Industry together with the City, Ottawa Visitors Center and our residents are continually working together to address them.
