The Petunia Festival at the end of June each year is an event that Dixon apartment-ites shouldn't miss. Of course, it would be hard to miss with the thousands of petunias planted along Galena and the main streets of town. About 16,000 people live in Dixon, the boyhood home of Ronald Reagan. It's also the site of where Abraham Lincoln joined the Illinois militia at Fort Dixon in 1832 during the Black Hawk War.
Dixon has several historical locations to visit, including an old settler's memorial log cabin, the Loveland Museum, and an inspiring statue of Abe Lincoln at the age of 23. Other places to visit in Dixon include the Dixon Dam and Power House, the Franklin Creek Grist Mill and Lowell Park. The park is on 200 magnificent acres along the Rock River, with cycling, hiking, picnicking and cross country skiing in winter.
The small town shopping atmosphere is great when you're shopping for your Dixon apartment or for yourself, with many of the shops run by the owners themselves. J&J Household Furnishings and Dixon Furniture Mart are a couple of these establishments. And when eating out for the evening or just grabbing a bite for lunch, there's a surprising variety of restaurants and coffee shops. Whether it's Italian or pizza, or steak and seafood, Mexican or Oriental, your palate's desire can be met in Dixon.
To sum it up, history, beauty and fun can be found in your city where you have a Dixon apartment.
