Madison County

Nearly 270,000 residents call Madison County home and it’s no wonder why. From the rocky bluffs overlooking the mighty Mississippi River crowned by Alton’s Clark Bridge, gold and glittering in the setting sun, to the soft, sweeping prairies of rural Madison County, there’s no shortage of breathtaking views. Also home to Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville and some historic cities and villages.  Whether it’s a leisurely stroll through the community farmers’ markets, exploring the local orchards, parks and festivals with your family or trying out one of the award-winning restaurants that make up an incredible culinary scene before hitting the lively nightlife – Madison County truly has something for everyone.
