Panther Den Wilderness

Panther Den Wilderness

Makanda, IL 62958

One of our favorite hikes. Explore the paths Jesse distracted Krystyna with as the family set up all the details for the proposal back at Buma and Opa's house. Moss, mushrooms, and large rock formations all promised on this short hike that can be completed before enjoying wine at Feather Hill and Blue Sky wineries next door.

Shawnee Hills Wine Trail

Shawnee Hills Wine Trail

2865 Hickory Ridge Road, Pomona, IL 62975

Southern Illinois is known for its scenic wineries! Our favorites include Feather Hill, Blue Sky, Starview, and Owl Creek. The day after our engagement a train got stuck on the tracks locking us at Owl Creek for several hours. It was a dream come true.

Ferne Clyffe State Park

Ferne Clyffe State Park

90 Goreville Road, Goreville, IL 62939

Just down the road from Lake of Egypt this state park is filled with endless trails for all hiking abilities. Send us a text and we'll help you choose the right route for you:)

Kinkaid Lake

Kinkaid Lake

IL

With competitive fishing relatives on each side of the family we invite you to battle it out to catch a musky at Kinkaid lake! With no housing developments around this massive lake fishing and pontoon partying flourish. If anyone dares you to jump off the cliff (even your 64 year old dad, who is also doing it) do not, for risk of leg bruises that last 8 months. We speak from experience.

Little Grand Canyon

Little Grand Canyon

Pomona, IL 62975

Moderate to difficult gorgeous hike for our adventurous friends. We have gotten lost here, but we also saw an armadillo. Great day.

Crown Brew Coffee Co.

Crown Brew Coffee Co.

107 East Union Street, Marion, IL 62959

So good we drive daily 20 minutes from Lake of Egypt. After your coffee check out the newly renovated Marion town square.

Faye

Faye

1616 Walnut Street, Murphysboro, IL 62966

Delicious breakfast, coffee, and cocktails. Opened by the daughter of the famous Mike Mills the patriarch of famous 17th Street Barbecue next door.

17th Street Barbecue

17th Street Barbecue

32 North 17th Street, Murphysboro, IL 62966

Visit the original location in Murphysboro (employer of Krystyna's sister Stephanie throughout her college years). Voted best barbecue in Illinois many times over.

Scratch Brewing Company

Scratch Brewing Company

264 Thompson Road, Ava, IL 62907

Our favorite beer in Southern Illinois. Foraged ingredients straight from the property, wood fired pizzas, and sourdough all taste especially magical at this woodland brewery that twinkles under string lights and fireflies on summer nights.
