Where the back roads take you…
Remember feeling the breeze while driving with your parents to destinations unknown?
Explore the Henry County countryside with your friends, family, and even the grandkids! There is no shortage of fun in any season. Explore our natural beauty, grand traditions, colorful heritage, and our friendly folks who know how to enjoy life.
Experience the spice of rural America. Visit Bishop Hill, our National Historic Landmark, get close to nature by hiking, biking, or fishing in our two state parks. Learn about agricultural history, the round barn, life on the farm, and pick a flower or two.
In the spring, summer, fall, or winter there is a festival for all. Shop in our downtown shopping districts, come dine in our restaurants, or enjoy the bakeries and coffee shops that line our communities’ streets. Save room for a slice of pie, a Henry County delicacy.
Henry County is a short drive from Chicago, the Quad Cities and Peoria metro areas. We offer an array of relaxing, fun activities for visitors of all ages. Take a road trip by car or motorcycle or hop an Amtrak train to reconnect, relive, and recreate your childhood memories in Henry County, Illinois!
