Adventures in southern Illinois – Edition #03

On this adventure, Leah got a little hungry. (Not surprising.) Maybe a little thirsty, too. Here’s some cool, local hangouts to check out this weekend.

Cool Spoons has waffle cones. Seriously.

COOL SPOONS FROZEN YOGURT | CARBONDALE & MARION, IL

I’m a busy girl. I’m also a very hungry one. I like that I can waltz right into either Cool Spoons locations, grab exactly what I want, and get on the road. This is a little trickier with a waffle cone – I tried. I may have gotten Tropical Twist all over me, but it’s all good because it was delicious. Check them out for a great way to cool down on a hot day:

Adventures in southern Illinois – Edition #02

Continuing on in my Adventures in southern Illinois series, I am venturing to Union County and the neighboring area. Union County features a large portion of our wine trail and has a lot of beautiful hills and valleys. I strongly suggest that if you haven’t watched a sunset in Alto Pass, you should.

Deep in the woods is Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tours, where you zipline from tree to tree. I would NOT suggest driving a sportscar – I was very glad to be cruising in a Jeep. Call ahead to make your reservation. Not Union County technically, but geographically extremely close.
