Things To Do In Metropolis, Illinois

Most people don’t realize that there really is a city in the US named Metropolis. We happened to stumble upon it on our road trip from hell and ended up staying a few days there.

We hadn’t anticipated a stay there. We didn’t even know the city of just over 6,400 people existed. But since we were going to be there a few days, we figured we’d explore and make the most out of the situation.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

Metropolis Casino

We spent a little bit of time at the Harrah’s Casino. We’re not gamblers, but we figured we’d check it out. There were a few bars, a buffet, and of course the usual slot machines and card games.

And even though we’re not that into Superman (we’re more into Marvel), we were totally nerding out at this museum. It’s kinda hard not to; there are over 20,000 items that span over 75 years of Superman history. From watches to movie props, this museum has it all!
