Things to Do

All Around Alton, IL and St. Louis Area

There is only 1 place in America where 2 of the nation's great roadways (Route 66 and the Great River Road) come together alongside the confluence of America’s 3 great rivers (the Mississippi, Missouri, and Illinois)—the Great Rivers & Routes region.

There is only 1 Gateway to the West—the St. Louis region.

The BEALL MANSION is proud to be part of both.

Fun, Fun, Fun Awaits

Thirteen months a year of fun, fun, fun await you. (OK. It's actually 12 months a year—but with so many things to do you will wish there were 13 months a year to do it all.)

From Wineries to Winter Eagle Watching, Antique Shops to Golf, Fine Dining to Live Theater, the St. Louis Zoo to Anheuser Busch Inbev tours—click on the buttons to the left for information on the virtually limitless number of activities and attractions to enjoy.

Best of all it's all—stay at the award winning BEALL MANSION An Elegant Bed & Breakfast Inn and all the fun things to do are close by.
