Oglesby homeowners find themselves in a hiker’s paradise, enjoying access to the trails of Matthiessen State Park, Starved Rock State Park, and Buffalo Rock State Park. Residents love boating, swimming, fishing, and kayaking along the winding waters of the Illinois River. Homes are nestled among colorful prairies, towering red oak trees, and beautiful gorges. Families can enjoy breathtaking views from their own backyards thanks to wrap-around porches, sprawling decks, and sun-catching four season rooms. Sip your morning coffee to the tune of woodland birds, reveling in a home life of peaceful seclusion.
Of course, the community offers far more than a picturesque environment. Oglesby families look forward to year-round celebrations such as the Oglesby Summer Fun Fest, Green Fete, Burgoo Fest, and Vintage Illinois Wine Festival. Local restaurants serve up a panoply of enticing flavors, from home style Italian to Cajun cuisine to old fashioned root beer in frosty mugs.
By night, the charming towns of La Salle County offer a comforting bar scene. From relaxing local dives to distinguished country wineries, there’s something to satisfy anyone’s thirst. Live bands provide fun dancing music or a soothing accompaniment to the sounds of the river.
