About This Trip

Looking for a quiet getaway, check out the state recreation parks, campgrounds, and the water sports, fishing, and fun that go with this. Looking for excitement, catch the races at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds or experience the thrill of the hunt during quail, pheasant and deer season.

Join in come good old-fashioned fun at a local festival like the Rock Creek Trail Days, Rock Island Rail Days, Diller Picnic, or the Steele City Flea Market. Still seeking more? Spend time at the Trail of Treasures along Heritage Highway 136 on October 5-7, 2018, Jefferson County Fair, and Shriner’s Annual 4th of July Flea Market in the Fairbury City Park. Live history for a day by taking in Rock Creek State Historical Park (every Third Saturday of the month from May-October), the Rock Island Depot, Fairbury City Museum or the Living History Weekends in Steele City’s historical District.
