If you’re looking for outdoor action, Southern Illinois is the place to be. The Egyptian Hills Resort on beautiful Lake Egypt is your adventure headquarters, where you can rent Jet Ski’s, super-fast ski boats, pontoon boats and relax at night in your cedar chalet.
A short drive away is some of the best rock-climbing anywhere on Draper’s Bluff and the Vertical Heartland Climbing School.
And don’t forget Illinois’ newest thrill ride – the Shawnee Bluff Canopy Tour. It’s a zipline ride that takes you over an 83-acre course, on the edge of the Shawnee National Forest.
On Friday and Saturday evenings, enjoy a “Culinary” adventure at Von Jakob Winery and Brewery. There’s cooking demonstrations on Sundays and the best food south of Chicago.
