Carbondale

Vacations are all about rest and relaxation, although it's nice to see some sights as well! You'll be able to do plenty of both in Carbondale.

The population of this area of Southwest Illinois is approximately 26,000.

You can find this destination approximately 150 miles from Springfield, the state capital of Illinois. It is also around 12 miles from Herrin.

If you're here with your family, set aside some time to check out the area's terrific child-friendly attractions. Let the kids choose from the Franklin County Fairgrounds, the Williamson County Fairgrounds and the Pinckneyville Fairgrounds.

To get a real taste for this region, make the trip to the Blue Sky Vineyards. Take a walking tour through the vineyards and chat with expert vintners. If you find something that you're particularly taken with, arrange to have a case shipped back home.

When it's time for a break, grab something for lunch and make your way over to one of the leafy urban parks, such as Pyramid State Park or Lake Murphysboro State Park. You'll also find plenty of space to lay about on the grass at the Benton City Park and Anna City Park.

A wise person once said, "In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous." Keep this in the back of your mind as you experience Giant City State Park.

Broaden your perspectives with a trip to one of the area's well-curated cultural spaces. Savor the quiet and relaxing atmosphere as you check out the collections at the Williamson County Historical Museum and the General John A. Logan Museum. The Frankfort Area Historical Museum and the Veterans Military Museum are also worthwhile.

Carbondale has some impressive monuments. Railroaders Memorial, Coal Miner's Memorial Park and Tower Square Plaza are some special places where you can learn about the lives and stories of some of the area's most influential people.

With the Southern Illinois University, the Shawnee Community College and the John A. Logan College all in the same area, it isn't surprising that this place is such a popular destination for young people. An arranged visit to any one of these campuses is a rewarding experience for past, present and future students.

If you love to shop, you'll want to check out the stores at Illinois Centre Mall.

There are a selection of fine theater and dance institutes here. Among its brightest stars is the Benton Civic Center. If you're feeling peckish after the show, follow your fellow theater goers to the nearby restaurants and enjoy the region's culinary specialties.

Amateur and pro golfers alike will discover a range of places to practice their swing, such as the Kokopelli Golf Club or the Hickory Ridge Public Golf Center. If you can't seem to keep out of the rough there, perhaps you should head over to the Stone Creek Golf Club and Resort or the Crab Orchard Golf Club.

Travelers who are searching for something a little bit different might also enjoy the Marion Carnegie Library.
