GRAFTON, IL (KTVI) - If you want to get a bird’s eye view of the world, you may want to head to Grafton. The Grafton Zipline at Aerie’s Riverview Winery has some of the best views in the area.

The zipline proprietors have added a new run—The Soaring Eagle—which they claim is longer than any other zipline in the region. It’s 2,000-feet long and 250-feet off the ground and provides a panoramic view of the confluence of the Illinois and Mississippi rivers.
