Watch The Sunset At Lake Renwick Preserve, A Unique Nature Escape In Illinois

All across the country – from open, rural landscapes to dramatic mountain peaks, desert dunes, island shores, and everything in between – one can find truly spectacular sunsets. Evening’s vibrant and dramatic shows have inspired poets, couples, and adventurers for ages. Now, they now fill our feeds with wanderlust-instilling photos and beckon explorers to new and exciting vantage points.

For an unexpected place to bask in some of Illinois’ prettiest sunset angles, Lake Renwick Nature Preserve has all of the dreamy colors, natural beauty, and peace and quiet you could ask for.

Please note that while Lake Renwick Nature Preserve is open year-round, the rookery area is closed except for guided tours during nesting season. Keep an eye on the Lake Renwick Nature Preserve Facebook page for updates and hours.
