This Memorial Day, spend the perfect long weekend outdoors enjoying nature and the unofficial start of summertime. Plan your getaway at our Utica hotel, perched in the Northwoods of Illinois near scenic Starved Rock State Park. On May 25, come out and observe the official holiday at Utica’s Memorial Day Parade. With a wreath-laying ceremony at six monuments and an afternoon procession along Genesee Street, the special event commemorates the heroes who lost their lives defending our country.
Plan an adventurous getaway at Grizzly Jack’s, where you’ll enjoy modern amenities like free Wi-Fi, casual dining, a wet-and-wild indoor water park and amusement park, plus charming rustic accommodations. You’ll have plenty to do here at our hotel, or you can find family fun nearby on the Illinois River. To make your escape extra special, sign up for a water cruise or a canal boat tour at http://www.starvedrockstatepark.org/activity/boat-rentals-marinas-water-adventures/
