Get Your Digs in Dix
Dix has a population almost as brief as its name. At just under 500 souls as of the 2000 census, this townlet (yes, we just coined the word "townlet") in the southern portion of the Prairie State is beyond petite. In fact, according to City-Data.com, between 2000 and 2009 there was exactly one more resident added to its ranks. It would seem one modern affliction Dix can't be diagnosed with is urban sprawl.
It sits adjacent to the Big Muddy River, a waterway we imagine is somewhat unpopular for swimming unless you're a fish. Especially a mudfish.

Depart To Dix
If northern Illinois can be claimed by the power of greater Chicagoland, then southern Illinois is Dix territory for sure.
Take a look at what we're talking about here. The image belongs on a canvas, not a webpage. Fortunately for Dix, this is what it can claim for its backyard. And front yard.
If you get a sleepy vibe it's probably because it's not only a quiet town of less than half a thousand, but it's got a relatively older population. The median age is 49, which means half the population is over this age and the other half below. This puts it well behind Illinois with its median age of 34, though we suppose you could consider the town well ahead of the state since its residents, you know, got a head start in life and all.
The town's got all the hallmarks of an out of the way small town. With almost no foreign born residents, a high marriage rate, and a higher than average religious affiliation, you could say the town's got its own kind of street cred. Or rather white picket fence cred.
The average apartment rent 'round these parts is a jaw dropping $250, which is about as much as a Californian will spend to eat out in a month. We jest, but just barely. On the other hand the median income is very low. So low we'd rather not even mention the actual figure, though you'll find it among the links above.
All in all, this is the kind of place that might be ideal for a telecommuter seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of the big metros. Or perhaps an author who needs to spend a little time in the boondocks to get some mojo back. Whatever your story, so to speak, Dix makes for a good setting.
Things To Do, And Eat, In Dix: Great Prairie Edition
Apart from walking gently through the tall grasses of the prairies that surround the area, what can one do? Splash around in the Big Muddy River? Check. Make smaller splashes in Casey Creek, the Big Muddy's tributary? Check. Cash a check? Obviously. Check.
How about picking up some great local fruits n' veggies? In that case, look no further than Hawkins/Schwartz Orchard & Market. You can even pick your own apples, and as they say, ""You can pick your apples, but you can't pick your family."" Or something like that. Of course seasonal availability is in full effect - this ain't no greenhouse - so plan accordingly.
