The Destination
Home to presidential politics and nascent jazz legends, the historic town of Alton, Illinois, sways to its own beat, at once avant-garde and austere. Beautiful limestone bluffs provide stunning spots to soak-in the mighty Mississippi River, while a charming downtown area offers its own flow of art centers, antique shops, high-end restaurants, and historic theaters. Steeped in American history (it was the site of the last debate between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas in 1858), the town's three historic districts, robust selection of museums, and acclaimed ghost tours give visitors a true lesson on a small town that shines as bright as the legendary river that rolls along its banks.

The Digs
Situated in the heart of Millionaire's Row—right along the Heartland Rivers Wine TrailThe Beall Mansion is your elegant Escape to all things Alton. Named one of Midwest Living's Best of the Midwest for hotels, this historic mansion is simply opulent, boasting soaring ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and leaded-glass windows that are steeped in authenticity. Melt into your luxurious room for two where a triple-sheeted feather bed awaits. Then relax with a glass of Champagne by your cozy fireplace or have a dip in your private bubbling whirlpool. For a sweet treat, try the mouthwatering chocolate buffet—a 24-hour "antique wooden buffet [that] holds crystal tiers and dishes filled with everything from dark-chocolate-drenched fruit to Hershey's Kisses," notes the Riverfront Times.

  • "A concierge e-mail when you book, a glass of champagne or sparkling cider when you arrive, a 24-hour chocolate buffet when a late-night craving kicks in? We could get used to this kind of service (and to the huge bathrooms with whirlpools and showers)."
