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!
River Beach Pub offers great food, a large selection of the best draft and bottled beers with the best view of the Illinois River. Enjoy the view from our warm knotty pine dining room and bar or our large deck. We also bring the best live Blues bands to Central Illinois.
