Mattoon is a city in Coles County, Illinois, United States. Visit Eversgerd’s Civil War Fort and Dana-Thomas House for their historical value. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Douglas-Hart Nature Center and Edwards Place Historic Home. Change things up with these side-trips from Mattoon: Tuscan Hills Winery (in Effingham), Rockville (Neet Covered Bridge & Raccoon Lake State Recreation Area) and Springfield (Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Memorial Garden, & more). And it doesn't end there: delve into the lush surroundings at Fox Ridge State Park, indulge your thirst for a good beer at The Sycamore Winery, immerse yourself in nature at Turkey Run State Park, and identify plant and animal life at Busey Woods.
