You’ll Have A

Time Here

So far, Spring 2020 hasn’t been at all what we had expected and there’s no predicting when things will change. But we’re putting up our new website so you can start LOOKING AHEAD. Even though things have been ON HOLD for a while there’s no reason you can’t explore new things to do or places to go online. And if you need to schedule . . . or reschedule . . . a special event, take a look the Meeting & Event Spaces section.

So . . . let’s get at it . . . Ready. Set. Scroll!

Hi! It’s nice to have you here on the website for Lee County, Illinois. How about we give you a quick overview of the some of the things you’ll encounter?

First off, you can go through the categories of things on the menu and pick what you like or you can go to the Communities section and see what each town has to offer. Each community has its own personality and its own fun and flavor.

History? Well, there’s the Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home and the John Deere Historic Site. If the great outdoors is your thing there are wildlife preserves, a state natural area, and the nationally known Nachusa Grasslands — where the buffalo roam. (Well, they’re technically bison.)

And if you travel in an RV or love to go camping you’ll be glad to know that Lee County has four safe and family-friendly campgrounds and an incomparable private ownership campground.

So that’s it. A thumbnail of Lee County, where the pace is casual, the folks are friendly, and restaurants and cafes serve meals you’ll savor at prices so reasonable you may be tempted to order dessert, too.

 

You’ll certainLEE find something you enjoy, and we can’t wait to see you!
