  • Very interesting. Unfortunately we're to late for a visit, but enjoyed the outside view.
  • I drove to Dixon especially to visit the Boyhood home of President Ronald Reagan. However I should done a little more research as I visited on a Sunday and the site is closed on Sunday's. So I had to be content with walking the grounds and seeing the home from the outside. It was still good to see the boyhood home of the future President. There is a statue of President Reagan standing next to the home however another visitor said it really didn't look much like the President. I tend to agree but it was still nice to see. I was really disappointed that I was not able to tour the house but hopefully I can return one day.
