Discovering Southernmost Illinois
If you are an outdoor lover then Southernmost Illinois is a paradise. The Giant City State Park contains camping, horseback riding, rappelling and so much more. Take a stroll down the Giant City Streets and see huge bluffs of sandstone that were formed almost 12,000 years ago. At the visiting center, there are scheduled tours that talk about the local flora, fauna, and the history of the park. The camping site The Giant City Lodge has cabins, swimming pools, gift shop and a lounge. Don’t forget to check out the rock climbing and horseback riding.
For those who don’t prefer the outdoors, there’s a great night light with restaurant and cafes, wineries, orchards, museums, and a whole section dedicated to Superman! Did you know that the Superman museum was located in Illinois? I did not. I thought Smallville was in Kansas, so this is a true mystery as to why the Superman museum is in Illinois.
