A Quiet Retreat Among Rolling Hills
After fast-paced, big-city sightseeing in Chicago, families might need a vacation after their vacation. Savvy Midwesterners know there’s a quiet, all-in-one escape just 90 minutes away. In the rolling hills along the Fox River, near beautiful Starved Rock State Park, outdoor fun and indoor surprises await.
Meet our Fox River Resort, where kids can splash around our Pirate’s Cay Indoor Water Park while you relax on deck with an iced tea and a splash of rum. Add a scenic horseback ride or a wintery cross-country ski trail, and you’ll know you’ve found Illinois’ best-kept secret.
