When it comes to accommodations there is a place to satisfy the most vivid imagination and needs. Choose from a wide variety of lodging facilities nestled among the trees, overlooking the countryside or even right on the Mississippi River. You might choose to stay at one of our many cabins, cottages, bed & breakfasts, campgrounds, motels, or vacation homes that offer the conveniences of your own home.
Mother Nature calls you to discover the hidden treasures in her backyard. Native Americans named this place “man-i-tumi” meaning Land of God. Our outdoor spaces and the Mississippi River will refresh your spirit and touch your soul.
A favorite Illinois getaway activity is bird watching. You'll spot birds of every species in their natural habitat. The highlight of the year occurs early in the year when Bald Eagles are found on the banks of the Mississippi River in winter but there is an abundance of bird watching opportunities year round.
Enjoy the small home town feeling as soon as you step into our shops, museums & restaurants.
