Each Friday throughout the summer we bring you Destination Illinois, a look at unique attractions, neighborhoods and landmarks across the Land of Lincoln.

Jon Tunberg, who co-owns Whitey’s Ice Cream with his brother Jeff, joins Steve Bertrand on Chicago’s Afternoon News to discuss the secret to their success.
