See Sweeping Panoramic Views Of Illinois From Atop The Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower

Illinois has plenty of places that offer stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Whether it’s the overlooks at Mississippi Palisades Park or the observation tower at Dixon Waterfowl Refuge, you can get a birds’ eye view of some of the most scenic parts of the state. Located in the small industrial village of Hartford, a place that, at first glance, doesn’t seem very scenic, the Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower offers panoramic views that would tell you otherwise. It’s also a part of the National Park system, so you know it’s filled with history.
