Sports, family fun, challenges and relaxation reside blithely alongside nature to summon a plethora of possibilities for entertainment. Drop a line on the banks of Lake Butterfield. Saddle up and hit Potawatomi Trail in search of totems and teepees. Sail the lagoon on a dragonboat. Take Fido to Happy Tails for a romp. Commune with fox, muskrats and beavers on Running Deer Trail.

Pavilion on the Lagoon

Wondering about that gorgeous building overlooking the Lagoon? It’s the historic 1905 Pavilion, one of Pekin’s last turn-of-the-century treasures. For over 100 years it’s helped townspeople celebrate all the major milestones of life from marriage to birth to everything in between, plus regularly hosting soirees for some of Pekin’s most successful businesses.
