The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the perfect family transport vehicle. Coincidentally, Peru, Illinois, has plenty of family-friendly events that are well worth attending. Here are a few things to do in Peru we at Coronet Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram highly recommend.
Mules, Mansion, Mimosas – Head down to Lock 16 Café to take a ride on a boat pulled by a mule. Next, take a tour of the historic Hegeler Carus Mansion. Guides will set the scene by playing characters from 1848. You’ll sit back, relax, and sip on a mimosa as you learn more about life in 1848. It all takes place on Sept. 16.
Help Wanted Tour – The Help Wanted Tour takes place on Sept. 16 as well and offers visitors the chance to take part in an interactive living history tour. Step back to 1848 and see what life was like when I&M Canal first began operating.
Music in the Back Door Lounge – Enjoy a cold drink and live entertainment at the Back Door Lounge on Sept. 23. The event takes place every Friday starting at 8 p.m. Afterwards, the family can sit back and relax in the spacious cabin of the Chrysler Pacifica.
