About the neighbourhood
Carbondale is unique in Illinois having one of the highest rates of college education - top 3% in the US. It also has the largest population of Millenials in Illinois at over 60%. Of course, that's due to SIUC which is just a few blocks away. The most retro bar in the Midwest, PK's, is just 4 blocks away. We are near the Cache River, a Wetland of International Importance; the Shawnee Hills and several man made lakes provide many outdoor activities. We reside in the middle of orchard country where peaches and apples are ripened to perfection in season. And there is the well known wine trail, with award winning vintages. Hickory Ridge, the best golf course in the region, is a 10 minute drive.
Getting around
An automobile is often needed for shopping, visiting SIUC, Memorial Hospital and dining on the 'Strip'. Visiting the Wine Trail or Breweries can be arranged with private transportation companies. We lend out two vintage Schwinn bikes as well.
