Southern Illinois is a wonderful place to call home! With over 33 state parks and just as many wineries, you’ll never be more than an hour away from a new trail to hike, lake to fish or wine to taste. Speaking to more than just the outdoorsmen (and women), Southern Illinois is also home to the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds (DuQuoin, IL), where you can find year-round events like the DuQuoin State Fair, live music, rodeos, monster truck events and Street Machine Nationals.
While the communities surrounding our four locations in Carbondale, Herrin, Marion and Harrisburg boast a welcoming small-town feel, St. Louis, MO and all it has to offer is within a two-hour drive and Nashville, TN is only a three-hour drive! Whether you are interested in hunting and fishing or baseball and boardwalks, Southern Illinois welcomes all!
