The Jacksonville and Springfield, Illinois area offers a wide variety of places to visit, dining options, and sightseeing venues. New Jacksonville venues are in development, including Waters Edge Winery and Bistro. Our locally owned shops are open, with restrictions as required. We love it when you shop local! Check our packages for seasonal discounts. Restaurants are coming back, too, and many offer outdoor seating, in season. We enjoy dining at Lonzerotti’s Italia Restaurant, watching the new model train travel around the restored 1906 train depot.
Like many other communities, our town has been following regulations related to the Coronavirus. This section lists attractions and activities that may still be restricted for a period of time, as noted by an asterisk*. We offer regular updates on closures and reopening plans in our monthly newsletters and social media channels. The Jacksonville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau is another terrific source for the latest status on things to see and do in the Jacksonville Area.
