Where is the Illinois River Road?
Traversing both east and west sides of the Illinois River from Ottawa, 150 miles south to Havana, the Illinois River Road has spurs to the communities of Princeton and Canton. The Illinois River Road corridor has over 100 natural and historic sites and numerous unique communities located throughout its 10-county region.
The Scenic Byway is conveniently located between Chicago and St. Louis, but just far enough to get away from it all. So get off the beaten path and see what the Illinois River Road has in store for you!
You don’t have to travel to Ireland to experience an authentic Irish pub. Duffy’s Tavern, a staple of downtown Utica, serves up delicious Irish favorites and compliments them with a large selection of imported and domestic beer, liquor, and wine. We recommend starting off with some nachos and then diving into a hearty Reuben, but anything on their menu is superb!
