Visit Union County and stay in a Cobden, Illinois bed and breakfast.
Cobden is located in the Southern Region of Illinois. This town’s mascot is its claim to fame. Appleknocker (which is a man with freckles, wearing overalls, a straw hat, flannel shirt, and chewing on a piece of straw) was a derogatory term made up by surrounding schools for the new high school since it didn’t have a mascot yet. This was supposed to be an insult to the school because of the large industry from peach and apple orchards. However, in 1964, the basketball team played in the state play-offs, showing the world what a small town could really do and making this mascot the pride of Cobden as well as Southern Illinois. Despite its small-town size, visitors will find much to do when they visit Cobden. Giant City State Park, Little Grand Canyon, and Bald Knob Cross are a few places to be sure to visit. There are many opportunities for hiking, biking, and rock climbing. The Vertical Heartland Climbing School, Tunnel Hill State Bike Trail, and Shawnee Hill Wine Trail are other activities that visitors will want to make sure they experience.
