Great Rivers Country

Spreading across wooded hillsides and rolling farmland squeezed between the meandering Mississippi and the Illinois River, Great Rivers Country proudly showcases its cultural and natural heritage to curious visitors. Known for its role in the American Civil War, the historic river town of Alton entices visitors with its burgeoning art and craft-beer scene. The neighboring Grafton is a heaven for shoppers in pursuit of authentic Native American crafts. Home to stately 18th- and 19th-century red-brick mansions, antique shops, and touristy bed and breakfasts, Galena offers a slow-paced getaway with a peek into the region's glorious past. Storied past brimming with tales of great explorers and soldiers combined with natural beauty is what a Great Rivers Country trip generously offers. Our United States tour itinerary planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
