7 Breathtaking Parks In Illinois That Showcase The Beauty Of Spring Every Year

While some of us enjoy the cold and snow, most can’t wait for the first signs of spring. The sun shines brighter, the air is warmer, flowers and trees start to bloom, and the frozen ice and snow start to melt, feeding rivers and waterfalls. It’s a great time of year to get outside, enjoy the fresh air at one of the many beautiful Illinois parks, and look for clues that spring has arrived! Here are a few parks around the state that showcase the beauty of the spring season each year.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
