I was born and raised in this area and frequented Starved Rock and other local attractions and towns . I lived and travelled to numerous places in the US and abroad. I truly believe you will find this a great 'value for your dollar '. You don't have to leave Illinois to find an adventure-filled, fun, historic, serene, and nature-filled place that offers so much to do. It is proven,: when we get back to nature we truly feel a positive difference. I will be readily available during your stay to guarantee your utmost satisfaction.
