America's Scenic Byways

Great River Road - Illinois

557.3 miles - Take four or five days to visit the entire byway.

Beautiful bluffs tower over the byway as permanent sentinels for the great river. Whether directly along the banks of the river or winding through the vast flood plain, Illinois presents its own flavor of the mighty Mississippi through its wildlife, farmland products, and four centuries of history and heritage.
