Day 2

Apple-cider doughnuts and fresh-picked Jonagolds make a great snack at Rendleman Orchards’ Farm Market in Alto Pass. (618) 893-2771; rendlemanorchards.com

A quick walk around Cedar Lake or a ride in a rented motorboat along Little Grassy Lake offers a quiet start to the day.

Yellow Moon Cafe in Cobden serves vegan dishes such as pumpkin soup made with coconut milk, and the carved turkey and cranberries come on wheat berry bread. (618) 893-2233; yellowmooncafe.com

Wine tastings easily fill another afternoon; plan to end at Rustle Hill Winery and enjoy the thin-crust veggie pizza and live music. (618) 893-2700; rustlehillwinery.com
