Grafton, Illinois 62037

Enjoy a leisurely three-hour fall color drive along the Great River Road between Grafton and Elsah and see for yourself why this drive is one of the best autumn excursions in the nation. Trees on the limestone bluffs are decked out in brilliant oranges, reds, yellows, rusts, and even purples, and the colors pop when set against the landscape of the Mighty Mississippi River. Discover the Historic Village of Elsah and shop at the Elsah General Store where you can find vintage sodas and candy among other local delights. A drive through the acclaimed Principia College includes a photo stop and history of the architecturally significant campus. The tour also includes a drive and photo stop at Pere Marquette State Park, the largest state park in Illinois.
