About Grafton

Located at the confluence of the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers, Grafton, Illinois prides itself as a “Real American River Town.” The picturesque town offers all the perks of small-town living, yet residents can experience big city life by visiting St. Louis, located less than an hour’s drive away. Hot summers provide the ideal setting for a wide range of river activities, including boating, fishing, jet skiing, and river cruises. During Grafton’s snowy winters, hundreds of bald eagles descend on the region, making it one of the best places in the U.S. to see a bald eagle in flight. In fact, Grafton’s annual "Eagle Meet and Greet” brings residents face to face with the massive predators. Despite its small size, Grafton offers an abundance of fun attractions. Residents can zip through Grafton’s high bluff region on Grafton Zipline Adventures, cool off at the Raging Rivers Waterpark, and even take a gondola cruise on the Grafton Sky Tour. The award-winning Grafton Oyster Bar serves up a wide array of fresh seafood, while Grafton Winery and Brewhaus provides the perfect atmosphere to kick back and relax. Grafton currently offers an enticing incentive package, including a free one-third acre plot of land in the Grafton Hills neighborhood, for prospective residents who agree to build a home on the land. The city is offering lots of land to build a home in the Grafton Hills neighborhood. Those interested in the land can call Stan Gula with Dream Homes Realty at 618-806-2747.
