” The natural beauty of the trees attracts visitors from far and wide as they burst forth in blazing magnificent color. The trees truly show us how beautiful ‘letting go’ can be! “
As we enter the final quarter of the year, we can’t help but wistfully long for the halcyon days of summer. However, there’s a sweet resignation to the start of autumn and the restorative and restful effect it has on us—mind, body, and soul. Fall is so much more than pumpkin spice and bonfires, although those things certainly boost our enjoyment of this beloved season in the Midwest.
What does Autumn mean to you? To many, just the mention of the season conjures images of Friday night football, cozy sweaters and scarves, bonfires and smores, crisp morning air, changing leaves, and all things pumpkin. Starved Rock Country truly comes alive in all its glory this season. The natural beauty of the trees attracts visitors from far and wide as they burst forth in blazing magnificent color. The trees truly show us how beautiful ‘letting go’ can be!
There is no shortage of events to fill your nights and weekends with. The fall festivals, apple orchard fun, trick or treating events, wine walks, Fall Colors Weekend, outdoor markets, and many more are enough to keep you as busy as you’d like.
If you’d rather take this season to slow down and unwind after a busy summer season, you can also find much needed respite. Rent a cottage at Heritage Harbor, and spend your days enjoying the warm sun and spectacular views of the kaleidoscope of changing leaves. Enjoy an evening meal at Red Dog Grill waterfront restaurant while the sun sets over the marina. Red Dog Grill has a full menu offering robust and hearty fare that is certain to warm your soul.
