This Charming Town In Illinois Is Perfect For A Summer Day Trip

This summer, you will hopefully see a bunch of new sites that you have never seen before. But you don’t necessarily want to spend days on end. So getting the best “bang for your buck” (both financially and metaphorically) is helpful. For a great summer day trip, we recommend hitting up Alton, Illinois. Why Alton? Well, Alton is a nice town on the Mississippi River that is full of history.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
