Harbor Life

Welcome to Heritage Harbor, a resort community built around a vibrant marina on the Illinois River.   A place where neighbors are friends, visitors are warmly welcomed, and traditions are made to last generations. We call it the Harbor Life not only because it is a harbor in the literal sense, but because it’s a harbor of leisure, rest and relaxation in a somewhat frenetic and pacey world.


Welcome To
