We can arrange for either a sightseeing tour of the Mississippi River from lock 12 to lock 11 and back or a fishing charter. The sightseeing tour is for a maximum of six people. The fishing charter will be a maximum of four people with a morning or afternoon charter available. Please ask us about them when you call to make a room reservation.

If you like history, you can tour Grant's home, lead mines and several historical buildings. If you're a high-topper, you can check out the highest point in Illinois, Charles Mound.

Artists, successful or struggling, love the many picturesque views available everywhere they look. Or, for the ultimate adventure...purchase a hot air balloon ride and check out the countryside from above.
