Picnic: Lincoln Trails State Park, Marshall, Illinois.

August 6th, 2010

When one is road-tripping and on the leg of their journey between the Cross-Roads of Indianapolis (Indiana) and the Gateway to the West of Saint Louis (Missouri), near the Illinois – Indiana state line they may find the quaint farm town of Marshall, Illinois. Just to the south of this town, nestled amongst the corn and soy bean fields is the Illinois state park called Lincoln Trails State Park. This is a pretty cool spot to get out of your car for a while and have a picnic. If you time your visit correctly, you may even be able to enjoy one of Marshall’s All-American celebrations as well. Watch out for the many farm tractors going up and down the road, though. :)
