Something New to Do!!

There is something new to do in the Starved Rock Area! Tom Aussem of "Awesome Ottawa Tours" Wants to show you some of our local history with his "Hidden Caves and Forgotten Graveyards" Hiking and biking tours. Tom wants to show you the local Indian Burials, Pioneer Graveyards and hidden caves of the area. But that's not all! He also offers tours of downtown Ottawa with local history, underground railroad, canal and the Radium Girls. And on the lighter side he offers a cocktail tour with local saloons and their history, as well as a food walk, featuring some of our local restaurants and fare, along with some history. Then for the strong hearted, he offers a Haunted Ottawa tour!! In this tour he covers "Ottawa's history of Suicide, Murder and Mayhem".

So, get some local history, a little exercise, fresh air and have some fun! Then, stay at the Brightwood Inn and relax and enjoy the peace and quite of country living and a great home cooked breakfast the next day! Remember, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!!
