Started the day off taking my family to breakfast! While dad slowly settled down for the day to enjoy the sunshine, mom and I decided to be adventurous and make the most of the beautiful Illinois weather. Tucked away in Zion, Illinois sits Illinois Beach State Park, a STUNNING beach front of Lake Michigan that can only give you the impression of being in the ocean. Camping, Hiking, Scenic Nature Preserves, and Smiling faces will welcome you to this happy place. Talking about it doesn't live up to describing the views...all I have to say is VISIT!
