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!

  
  

Nature Sites Throughout the Illinois River Valley

The sparkle of the Illinois River at sunrise, the cliffs of Starved Rock, wetlands full of waterfowl, the emerald fields of cropland, the calm of the forest, ribbons of birds in flight. The unique nature of the river valley offers a diversity of natural settings for those who stop and see and listen and feel the natural beauty along the Illinois River Road. Both the Illinois River and the Illinois River Valley, the water, the bluffs, and the plains, allow you to personally interact with nature.
