Great Rivers, Great Routes, Great Meetings

There’s only one place in America where historic Route 66 meets the Great River Road – in the Great Rivers & Routes region of Southwest Illinois.  

Let the majesty of the confluence of the Missouri, Mississippi, and Illinois rivers inspire your team. Invest in creativity as you explore an area overflowing with history.  Imagine your organization’s future in a destination that puts you at the center of convenience, but keeps you secluded enough to be productive.

Conveniently located just 20 minutes from St. Louis Lambert International Airport, the area is easily accessible via I-55, I-70, I-270, I-44, I-255 and I-64. Travel by train from all over the country and pull into the Amtrak station located in Alton.
