just a few of our favorite things
Experience the fun of outdoor adventure at Starved Rock State Park, located 6 miles east from the Uptown Grill. Whether you enjoy hiking the nature trails or viewing the spectacular overlooks along the Illinois River, recreational opportunities abound. From picnicking to fishing, boating, horseback riding, camping or enjoying winter sports, there’s so much to do that you’ll come back again and again.


Located 2 blocks south from the Uptown. In April 1848 Chicago celebrated the long-awaited connection of the waters of the Mississippi River system with those of the Great Lakes basin. Some say that the canal built Chicago. Although not used for transporting cargo today, you can still enjoy hiking along the towpath that follows the canal to downtown Utica. Fishing is also available along the path.
Located 6 blocks northeast of the Uptown. “The Hegeler Carus Mansion and its collection are a direct link to that which made Illinois a world cultural center in the later 19th century. The treasures of the Hegeler Carus Mansion show it to be the most important survivor of German heritage of its time. This is a unique distinction not only for La Salle and Illinois, but also for the United States.”
Just a mere block away from the Uptown, Stage 212 is the Illinois Valley's community theater. Begun in 1968 as a summer project of the Spring Valley Youth Center, the community theater group was chartered as an independent, non-profit corporation in 1970. Recent performances include Mulan, Jr. and the Scarlet Pimpernel.
