Southern Illinois is in stark contrast to bustling Chicago, full of national forests, rocky peaks, hidden waterfalls and natural lakes, Illinois encompasses true America. Take a trip on the Mississippi River to discover sleepy towns, wind-beaten cliffs and 19th-century stone cottages. For an adventure holiday, the journey to the Shawnee Hills, these mini-mountains are perfect for outdoor activities for the family. With nothing too extreme in the area, you can explore by horseback, cycling hiking and car. The Shawnee National Forest is nestled between the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers so you can set up camp on the river banks and spend your days fishing or meander in a boat discovering creeks and bluffs. For climbers, Jackson Falls offers a 60ft canvas of sandstone cliffs and boulders for you to ascend and descend.
