    • What a fast response to this blog. There are many other fun things to do here in Taylorville, IL including golf, fishing, hiking and biking. We have a great selection of restaurants and drinking establishments. Of course there is entertainment in the form of a two screen movie theatre (Hey, it’s a small town) as well as bands at local bars, summertime fetes, the State Fair is coming up.
