Why i Luv Local Places.com!
"What makes you special?" 


Uniqueness and character are traits we like in people. The more you find to admire about a person the more you want to spend time with and get to know them.



Our attitude toward a community is no different than those we have toward people. We rarely frequent communities with nothing special or unique to offer us and we strive to spend as much time as possible in those which offer the best experiences in dining, entertainment and shopping.

The Secrets of Carbondale
By Rielly Wilborn

The very first time I asked for a recommendation for a good restaurant in Alton (our new town), my heart broke a little when the lady enthusiastically suggested "The Golden Corral".

Every town has its hidden secrets, and I was hoping to find one that day. But, I did not.

Because of this, I feel that it is my duty to pass on some of my favorite places and things about my home for the last 8 years. Click here to read more.
