A few weeks ago I took a trip about 40 miles north to Aeries Resort with my friend Meghan and our guys. Aeries is located in the small town of Grafton, IL. Sitting atop a hill overlooking the majestic Mississippi River with views so magical you’ll never want to leave. Actually Aeries touts them as, “The Best Views In The Midwest”.
And at this point, I don’t beg to differ.
The four of us spent our time together laughing and eating and gawking over the sun each night as it set in all the right pink and purple hues. Drinking too much wine, good wine, really good wine. Some of the best local wine I’ve ever had. And, flying through the forest on ziplines like we were teenagers naive of our own mortality.
As a native east coaster, the Midwest is all new territory to me.
