My cousin from California along with my husband and I set out on the Spoon River Drive. Located in Fulton County, the river wends its way through the countryside and along the way vendors set up with items from antiques to collectibles to flea market items. “This is a combination swap meet and collection of cool antiques,” my cousin described the event.
With food along the way, clear blue sky and the trees blazing fall colors, the festival is a way to unwind and enjoy autumn before the snow flies. There are several cultural stops along the way that I always enjoy like the miniature Statue of Liberty in London Mills.
If you get the chance, take the scenic drive!
