Day Tripper

Spring has sprung and the weather's been gorgeous, for the most part. So thoughts turn to getting the heck out of Dodge. It's a great time to take a little day trip or over-nighter.

So tell us, what's your favorite place or places to go within a roughly 150 mile radius or a couple hours of the Quad Cities?

Up the river? Down the river? Little known spots? Great fishing? Great little restaurants? Beautiful drives? Historical sites?

Pass along your secret destinations for a short get-away and tell us a bit about why you enjoy it.

Won't be a "secret destination" if we tell you. Geez.

But what if we promise not to tell anyone else? It's just between us friends, after all.

Well, I already told you about the Candlelight II restaurant in Rock Falls, Illinois, but none of you ever listen.

If you have never been to downtown Geneva, Illinois, you must go. It is such a wonderful town, with countless beautiful shops adorning the most friendly of streets. The town boasts a veritable plethora of bed and breakfast establishments. Geneva is an absolutely superb getaway.

I have come within a whisker of taking a drive to eat at the Candlelight. Something came up at the last moment and I had to scratch the plan. I'll get there yet though. It sounds great.
