I grew up in the rural area surrounding the Spoon River. The autumn leaves are indeed beautiful. There is much to do and see in the area during the first two weekends in October. Dickson Mounds Museum is a must for anyone interested in the history of the area.

While you are enjoying the "Drive" please take time to take pictures and enter the photo contest. I have been doing it for years and years and need some competition! All the details are in the program booklets that are available in most of the towns on the route.
I have gotten up early for 49 years to enjoy the people and scenery of the "Drive" and would recommend it to everyone.
Take you time and don't plan on being anywhere at a certain time. You can't see it all in one day !
Just plan to have a fun week end!
