Signature gardens, winery vineyards, art galleries and living history tours through seven historic sites are just a few of the activities available for groups in the Meeting of the Great Rivers. Groups will be kept on the edge of their seats as they travel through time on Alton’s Lincoln & Civil War Legacy Tour. Experience the famous and final debate between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. Douglas near the Mississippi River in Alton. Hear the story of slaves as they made their way across the Mighty Mississippi to the free state of Illinois on an Underground Railroad Tour.
Breath deep and enjoy the beauty and wonder of three magical gardens during our outdoor Gardens Tour which includes the Lewis & Clark Community College Missouri Botanical Signature Gardens, the Nan Elliott Rose Garden and the Missouri Botanical Signature Gardens at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. Or stop in at our Illinois Made designated shop, Mississippi Mud Pottery and watch the artists create new pieces right before your eyes.
Finish your visit with a trip to the vineyards at Grafton Winery — The Vineyards where you can sip award-winning, locally crafted wines and enjoy a view like no other from inside the pavilion or outside beside a lake.
