To all our Kinfolk !  Ma & Pa Red Neck r’ cord-jelly invitin’ ya’ll  for vittles after the weddin’ rehearsal of our son Bubba to Billie Jean, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Don  Worthington.

Directions to the Neck Hog Farm:  Ya’ go over yonder a piece, pass the big blue silo. Turn right at the old oak tree with the sign sayin’ “Trespassers will be SHOT.”  Pass the red barn that needs new paint.  Go straight a spell til’ ya’ see the outhouse on the left, with the buckshot in the door under the moon. Foller the barbed wire fence to the opened gate. Turn right, under the arch with a life sized etchin’ of our prize boar “Porky” hangin’ on it.   Park down in the holler.  Don’t hit any pigs!

Local Guide to Alton Area Attractions

Spend time to see all the features that the area has to offer. The Mighty Mississippi River with American Bald Eagles flying above cuts deep into the bluffs of Illinois with help from the Great Rivers Scenic Byway.  Follow it around and through the lock and dam til it merges with the adjoining Missouri River. This is where Lewis and Clark set off on their perilous journey West to find the Pacific Ocean. Explore the intricate landscape and discover the hidden local wonders amongst us.

Take a stroll through Upper Alton, just a few blocks from the hotel and stand next to the “World’s Tallest Man, Robert Wadlow” or sit in a replica of his chair and see how you size up!  Take a splash with our Splashin’ Deal with Raging Rivers WaterPark! , Eat.
