Enjoy the leaves changing colors by grabbing your bicycle (or renting a LimeBike) and hitting the pavement on one of the region's bike paths!
Perryville Recreation Path - Hop on this 14.9 mile path which is built through the Keeling-Puri Peace Plaza and connects to the 1.4 mile loop at Midway Village.
Rock River Recreation Path - Built at the bicentennial community project in 1976, this ten mile paved path winds along the Rock River and beside Sinnissippi Gardens.
Stone Bridge Trail - Built on a former rail bed dating back to the 1850s, this path provides a crushed limestone pathway through rural countryside.
There's no better way to celebrate fall than taking a hayride, building your own scarecrow, or drinking hot cider while doing some afternoon shopping. Pack your fall full of fun by attending these local events and festivals!
