Tours, Cruises, Museums, Outdoor Activities Lure Travelers To Mississippi River Shores Of Western Illinois, Eastern Iowa


On a bluff overlooking the Mississippi is Clinton’s Wide River Winery, where we enjoyed wines with snacks on a peaceful deck set high above a ravine. The owner, Dorothy O’Brien, is a lawyer, and her husband is a retired judge. As a nod to their profession, Wide River’s whites and reds bear names like White Collar Crime, Caught Red Handed, Repeat Offender, So Sue Me Sue, Double Jeopardy, Not Guilty and Sweet Justice. The wine slushies are a real treat. Wide River has tasting rooms in LeClaire and the Village of East Davenport.
