Featuring lofty cliffs, caves, sinkholes, wooded ravines and slopes smattered with wildflowers, Mississippi Palisades State Park has garnered recognition as a national landmark by the US Department of the Interior. If that isn’t enough, the unique rock formations Indian Head (eagle-shaped) and Twin Sisters (humanoid figures) should be enough to win you over.

Animal life, both within the park and adjoining river areas is thriving. It includes waterfowl, woodpecker, eagle, fox, the occasional badger and more. Interestingly enough, Sufjan Stevens wrote a song in homage to the area entitled The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades Is Out To Get Us on his critically-acclaimed 2005 album Illinois. That alone makes it worth the trip.
