Many of Ottawa’s attractions can be found within easy driving distance of Peru, so it is a popular place to stay or visit on a day trip. Two sights that should be at the top of every visitor’s to-do list is the fabulous Baker Park and the much-loved Peru Mall. Also, be sure to check out the Hegeler Carus Mansion and the Spring Creek Golf Course.
To experience this region’s leafier side, grab your golf bag and head to the Deer Park Country Club in Oglesby.
After a day discovering the sights, sounds and smells of Peru, rest up at one of the area’s hotels or serviced apartments. The Super 8 Motel - Peru, the Hampton Inn and Suites Peru and the La Quinta Inn Peru - Starved Rock State Park are just some of the best places to stay while you are enjoying this special area.
