Shawnee National Forest Is A Beautiful Park In Illinois That Is Perfect For Your Next Outing

There is no shortage of the number of awesome parks right here in the Land of Lincoln, but the one we’ve got for you today might just be your new favorite. How does observing a wondrous geological artifact while hanging out in a fairytale forest sound? Come along with us today as we explore the wonders of the Shawnee National Forest – a beautiful park in Illinois that is perfect for your next outing.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Of the spaces we mentioned in this article, the Pomona Natural Bridge is the most impressive. There are plenty of places in the not-so-small forest area that have light or moderate traffic, but there’s just something so special about hanging around with a feature that old and wonderful. You’ll love the Garden of the Gods, but to really enjoy the fullness of Shawnee, you’ll want to visit the natural breeze.
