December 28, 2017 Giuseppe Pratt

O'Fallon is a city in St. Clair County, Illinois, United States, and one of the fastest-growing communities in the Metropolitan St. Louis area. A 2017 special census listed the city's population at 30,440. The city is the second largest city in the Metro-East region and Southern Illinois. Due to its close proximity to Scott Air Force Base, the population receives a boost from military and federal civilian personnel, defense contractors, and military retirees.

Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site

A sophisticated Native American society of about 20,000 people that operated via a sun calendar and disappeared by 1400.

Reviewed By SportsMoose - Indianapolis, Indiana

If you are in the St Louis area, or plan to be, this is an amazing spot to stop! It's a State Historic site, National Historic site, and World Heritage Site! At its peak Cahokia Mounds was a community stretching 6 square miles and included 120+ mounds, which were used to elevate residences, official buildings, and even some graves. In 1250AD it housed 10-20,000 people, which made it a larger city then London was at the time! Monks Mound, the largest mound, is the largest prehistoric earthen construction in the Americas. We went on a day when the museum was closed, so I cannot speak to that. However, we drove around the paved areas to check out the various mounds, and then parked by monks mound and hiked up. I love historic places that are outside and open like this, so young kids can enjoy it instead of worrying about breaking something! The kids were able to explore the stockade re-creation, and run around on the grass. We did stay on the path and stairs when climbing the mound to avoid erosion, but when we got to the top there was lots of room to roam around, and you can even see St. Louis in the distance. Add this to your list of things to see!

Fezziwig's Marketplace

Reviewed By BradandStacy41 - Evansville, Indiana

Our initial reasoning to visit was to surprise our parents because they love Dickens. What a wonderful surprise it was! Stepping in the door, immediately being drawn to something special.. the gourmet food items, bread baking kits, the flavored olive oils & vinegars, the soup mixes, the list goes on & on, all in wonderful, charming packaging. The displays are perfect to drawing the eye to various highlighted items. It made us want to make plans to create a warm and welcoming home for the holidays! There were samples to taste, wines to try, and the TEAS! Perfectly blended teas of every flavor and every possible mix one could imagine! From fruits to spices to healing teas, there are so many! Beautiful tea kettles, aprons, and lovely dish designs. The staff and keepers of the shoppe are literally brimming with joy and warmth! They are so excited to share with you when you’re there, to tell their story, and to ask you about yours… and don’t forget to take a look out back in the courtyard and the barn… WOW! What a great backstory to that area! (Not going to share it here.. if you want to know, go and visit them.. it’s SO much more fun that way!) We will definitely stop back in the next time we’re traveling there. We need to restock our tea! Cheers!

Hettenhausen Center for the Arts

Reviewed By lynclarke - Saint Louis, Missouri

McKendree University has a lovely performing arts center on its campus. It is a beautiful venue with all the technical bells and whistles. They offer performances throughout the school year. We have seen plays, USAF MidAmerica band, St Louis Symphony, Jazz bands, opera singers, Chinese Acrobats, quirky light and mime shows, and more. There are guest speakers who offer views into their specialized fields. There are student and faculty productions. Finallly, there are classic films shown at times. The Hett, so named for a local benefactor, is a gem in a small community. One can buy one ticket or a season of tickets. We look forward to each production. The theater holds about 350 seats and recently they offer valet parking.

Reviewed By kls1974 - Collinsville, Illinois

Amazing experience today for the first time here.. The individual spa rooms were very welcoming . The float room / tub itself was so peaceful, the lights on the ceiling , the water was perfect temperature, I couldn't suggest any improvements . Also all of the amenities of the facility itself were notable in the washroom and hair / makeup room. Everything felt very high end , like I was at the Four Seasons of the float spa world .

Eckert's Belleville Farm

Reviewed By tmf7150 - Highland, Illinois

We went as a large work group to pick up pumpkins. There is plenty of parking. We loaded onto wagons that took us out to the field where we all picked our own pumpkin. It was also apple picking time, so that was an option as well. The store there has beautiful items and is fun to look through. You can also buy food items as well. I think this is a nice place to take the family for a fun day out. The facility is very nice.

Kruta Bakery

Reviewed By T H - Russellville, Kentucky

Kruta has been a family and community favorite for many years. I brought a visitor home and wanted to show it off (since she had recently shown off her Nashville favorite to me). None of us was disappointed. Everything was fresh. The variety was great, even late in the day.
Prices are reasonable. The system is efficient. I wish they had more descriptions to help make decisions.
My friend thought my hometown bakery was as good as hers.

Shooter's is located in what was the local hardware store and they have found ways to keep that character alive in their place. The BBQ which is what we go for is exceptional. Their adult beverage selections are equally terrific making this a great place to frequent.

World's Largest Catsup Bottle

Reviewed By BBQ_Judge - St. Louis

Worlds largest katsup bottle that is actually a water tower!!! How could anyone possibly leave this off their bucket list? This is a much better and enlightened artistic treatment than the standard ugly water tower that is lurking around most towns and shows real creativity as well as marketing genius by accurately depicting a now defunct brand of catchup. While the Eiffel Tower might be older, taller, better lighted, better maintained, and more famous; it can never achieve the ne-plus-ultra level of monuments since it is unfortunately not made in the shape of a condiment container.

Slightly older movies for less with cheaper concessions Yep this is where new movies go after initially shown for 5-8 weeks at the premium price at other locations. Awesome value for a family or anyone on a budget. Even better deals going on Tuesdays and Wednesday.
