Peoria’s Grandview Drive

If the idea of an old-fashioned Sunday drive sounds like the perfect afternoon to you, we recommend heading down Grandview Drive in Peoria. This is a 180-acre place where anyone can go to enjoy the view and some fresh air. If you want to see something truly breathtaking, visit in the fall when the leaves change color.

Illinois Lincoln Highway

Take a trip down the historic Lincoln Highway and you can make a pit stop at Ronald Reagan’s childhood home in Dixon. There’s plenty more to see on this stretch of road, so pack up the car and head out today!

Long Hollow Scenic Overlook

For those looking for a lovely, picturesque rolling countryside, the Long Hollow Scenic Overlook is where you need to drive. Bring along some good friends and your camera and you’ll be in for a fun adventure.

Illinois & Michigan Canal State Trail

The Illinois & Michigan Canal State Trail offers something for everyone. Not only will you be able to enjoy the open road and wooded areas alike, but there are also plenty of beautiful, historical stops along the way. You can also park and walk the trails along the way for a bit more fresh air and sunshine.

The Morton Arboretum

The Morton Arboretum allows you to drive or even walk the trail viewing their many art exhibits within the trees as well as the beautiful landscapes and colors along the way. Check out their website to see what events and exhibits–like the troll sculpture exhibit–they have going on and schedule your trip today!
