Madison County is located on the Mississippi River and Horseshoe Lake in Illinois and is part of the St. Louis Metro Area. Its county seat is Edwardsville.
Horseshoe Lake is the second-largest natural lake in Illinois after Lake Michigan. Madison County has developed more than 85 miles of scenic bikeways that weave throughout the communities of Edwardsville and nearby Glen Carbon and beyond.

Edwardsville is the third oldest city in the State of Illinois. It is a community that is rich in history and full of beautiful homes and neighborhoods. For more than 120 years, the Edwardsville Municipal Band has played summer concerts every Thursday night at 8 pm in the City Park. The concerts have become an Edwardsville tradition and are attended each week by hundreds.

Alton is a city in Madison County about 15 miles north of St. Louis, Missouri. Alton is located amid the confluence of three important navigable rivers: the Illinois, the Mississippi, and the Missouri. Many blocks of housing in Alton were built in the Victorian Queen Anne style, which marks a successful period of the city's history. The Great River Road is a popular bicycle tour destination. Hidden in a notch of the cliff is the tiny town of Elsah, Illinois.

Roxana is a village in Madison County. Local lore is that the name Roxana was chosen to honor Queen Roxanne of the Netherlands because the village owed its very existence to state owned Royal Dutch Shell.

The village of Godfrey is a wall of picturesque limestone bluffs along the Mississippi River. The Missouri River empties into the Mississippi ten miles downstream. The Village of Godfrey is a mixture of small business, agriculture, and upper middle class housing developments. Nearby, at the mouth of the Missouri River, is the starting point for the expedition of Lewis and Clark.

Granite City is adjacent to the Chain of Rocks Canal on the Upper Mississippi River. Hartford is near the mouth of the Missouri River. Lewis and Clark spent the winter of 1803-1804 here, near what has been designated the Lewis and Clark State Historic Site. The village is located approximately 15 miles north of downtown St. Louis, Missouri on the Mississippi River.
