This place is the perfect nature escape from the city. Located roughly 90 miles southwest of Chicago on the banks of the Illinois River, this state park has over 13 miles of hiking trails and some incredible sandstone formations created by glacial runoff. There's also camping and lots of great fishing. The historic Starved Rock Lodge and Conference Center and its Back Door Lounge are also worth checking out if you're tired of the outdoors.
