Planning a 'staycation' in southern IL


Here's your chance to learn about affordable getaway options right in your own backyard.

State Representative Brandon Phelps of Harrisburg is teaming with the Southernmost Illinois Tourism Bureau and the Illinois Department of Resources to offer a free seminar on "staycations."

The seminar will be held on September 28 at the Harris Pruett Building at 107 East Church Street in Harrisburg.

You'll learn about regional attractions in and around southern Illinois.

Phelps says the idea is to give families more information about how to have fun without spending too much money.
