Here in beautiful East Moline, Illinois, we’re perfectly positioned for road trips to some of the most beautiful locations in the country in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin. And with tax returns going through every day, you have some spare cash to hit the road and discover these perfect spring road trip destinations.
The historic town of Galena, Illinois, is a perfect place to spend the day or even a long weekend. More than three-quarters of Galena’s beautifully preserved 19th-century buildings are located in a National Register Historic District, so you know you’re getting a taste of real history.
The Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford are an absolutely gorgeous spot in north central Illinois, just a two-hour drive from East Moline. Quiet and serene, this is the perfect spring road trip to take with your tax return and get away from it all for the day.
If you’re looking for something a little creepy, head west across the Mississippi and stop by historic Buxton, a ghost town outside of Lovilia, Iowa. Though Buxton quickly declined in the early 1900s, its remaining structures are still worth a visit.
Maybe you’d rather spend the day inside with good food and drink instead of in nature. In that case, try the Potosi Brewery & National Museum, which houses a restaurant, microbrewery, and of course the museum. Children under 18 years of age get free admission.
Contact us at Reynolds Ford to schedule a maintenance appointment for your vehicle, to ensure that you travel to and from these destinations safely.
