Parks in the Community and Beyond

When people think of the Midwest they often think of Corn and Soybeans.  This is not too far off,  what people don’t see is the natural beauty that this part of the world has to offer. We have a number of parks and recreational areas that you can utilize when visiting or passing through East Central Illinois.

Whether you are enjoying the great outdoors, hunting or fishing, Mattoon is in the Center of it all. Stay at any one of our central hotels and enjoy a night on the town before relaxing in the wilderness or at one of our many parks.  Check out the map below for more information.
