Greater Metropolis Convention & Visitors Bureau Welcomes You!

Where Adventure Begins!

Metropolis, Illinois, where heroes and history meed on the shores of the majestic Ohio River.  This All-American town has been a must visit destination for Superman fans, since being authorized by National Periodical Publication (D.C. Comics) to become the adopted “Home of Superman” over 45 years ago, in the January of 1972.  Since then, Metropolis has become more than a comic fan Mecca.  With world-renown events that celebrate the history, hunting and yes, even Superman, as well as an action packed casino and outdoor wonders that can take you through the Shawnee National Forest or even under water through a Boeing 727 Airplane, Metropolis is a town that has been added to many bucket lists.

Located at the very southern tip of Illinois on the border of Illinois and Kentucky at the intersection of Interstate 24, US Highway 45 and IL Highway 145, along the Ohio River Scenic Byway, Metropolis offers the best small-town America has to offer.  With 7 CVB approved lodging facilities, over 20 local eateries and over 20 specialty shops, Metropolis provides Southern Illinois hospitality at it’s finest.

Local tourist attraction include Illinois’ First State Park; Fort Massac State Park, Harrah’s Hotel & Casino, the 15 Foot Superman Statue and Super Museum, Mermet Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area and Mermet Springs Scuba Facility.
