It’s time to enjoy the fall colors of nature in Illinois. I recently visited Kankakee County, where you will discover many fall colors. I had a picture perfect day to take in the colors of the trees. I visited the Kankakee River State Park which has over 4,000 acres where you can hike, bike, and fish. Taking in the fall scenery is a great way to relax and enjoy the outdoors. I could have easily spent all day viewing the scenery, but I decided to move along to view more places before my drive home. It was suggested I see the newly opened Frank Lloyd Wright’s Bradley house right on the river path.
Tours are available to view the Bradley home, a sight to see for all Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiasts. If you enjoy a neighborhood feel, stroll along Kankakee’s Riverview Historic District. The Riverview Historic District has many Victorian homes and English gardens along the river that reminds you of a bygone era.
I spent a great day in Kankakee county and will be returning soon. There is so much I missed, like the Barn Quilt Tour, and The Historical Society, and the land of the original Dairy Queen. I was told the original was torn down, however there is still a DQ standing in its place. On my next visit to Kankakee County I will start at DQ, since I missed dessert last time.
