Here in southern Illinois we are not to far from the river on either side of us. The great thing about that is that there is always awesome located near the river. One of my favorites in Hardin, Illinois is the Barefoot bar. There you will find food and a great view of the river. Remember to enjoy.
Closer to home, well not to far away from me you will find the little town of Elizabethtown Illinois. While small in number this little town has a river boat restaurant that offers a bit flavor. The catfish platter is our favorite. By the way, the view can not be beat.
