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!

Pekin Riverfront Park
Front Street, Pekin, IL



Listing Photo With a viewing platform, picnic and parking area, this small urban park provides a great place for viewing winter eagles. They also host an annual Eagle Census Festival across the street on the third weekend of January. There are live birds of prey, storytelling, music and guided tours of the river. In the spring and fall, it is worth a quick stop to scan the river for waves of migrating ducks, geese, grebes, or gulls.
