Quaint local small town of Metropolis, Il. 30-35 miles from us. The Superman celebrations are an annual thing and very big deal for this little river city! Worth the trip across the bridge!
Be sure to visit the town of Metropolis while in the area. From the superman statue to the museum. The kids will love visiting this town if the are into comic books. There are also several great restaurants in the area and local shops.

“(14 min drive)– State park with a campground, picnic areas, and swimming pool with some neat rock formations if you drive through the park area. Ghost Dance Canyon is a neat hike that is about 0.7 miles out and back with good scenery. Make sure to stop by the Chocolate Factory when you visit Dixon Springs!”

“Crab Orchard Lake was created when Crab Orchard Creek, a tributary of the Big Muddy River in southern Illinois, was dammed in the 1930s for purposes of recreation and flood control. The Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge was established August 5, 1947 following the transfer of all land previously held by the Crab Orchard Creek Project and the Illinois Ordnance Plant to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. The lake offers opportunities for boating, camping, fishing, and swimming. Two campgrounds, Blue Heron and Crab Orchard, operate on the northern side of the lake. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) has stocked the lake with largemouth bass, and starting in 2006 has also installed artificial spawning beds in the lake's Grassy Bay (the lakebed's eroded clay and soft muck surfaces are not suited to bass spawning). As of 2008, the record largemouth caught in the lake weighed 10.6 pounds.”

“There are many beautiful hiking trails of varying levels of difficulty. The most accessible is Big Rocky Hollow Trail, which is wide, level, well maintained, and less than a mile long. It leads to an intermittent waterfall nestled among large rock formations in a forested area. This park is a lovely place to spend the afternoon or camp for the weekend. ”
