Welcome to ILLINOISouth

ILLINOISouth Tourism covers more ground than any other Convention and Visitor's Bureau in the State of Illinois. We represent 21 counties stretching from the Mississippi River east of St. Louis, MO to the Wabash River west of Vincennes, IN. We are both rural and urban, allowing guests to enjoy big city life and simple, country treasures all at once!

Visitors come to our region for family friendly attractions, historic sites and outdoor recreational opportunities as well as over 900 annual events. While you're here, be sure to stay in one of our many hotels, lodges or quaint B&Bs. Visit our attractions, and check out our shopping destinations, cozy wineries and great local cuisine, too. Adventure is in ILLINOISouth!
