Overall Guide : The most famous landmarks in Carbondale are the Southern Illinois University and the area of Highway 51, commonly referred to as ‘The Strip’. This stretch of land features an array of shops, restaurants and bars. The Southern Illinois University Museum Carbondale,... more boasting a collection of more than 50,000 objects and several temporary exhibits of art and historic artefacts, is an art as well as a history lover’s haven. Also of note is the African-American Museum of Southern Illinois, which commemorates the outstanding achievements of African-American citizens. The Science Center and Children’s Museum of Southern Illinois and the Touch of Nature Environmental Center are educational, informative and ideal for children.   Nature lovers and those seeking outdoor fun will enjoy Cedar Lake (perfect for fishing), Lenus Turley Park (ideal for picnicking) and Marberry Arboretum (housing over 100 genera, 600 species and 20,000 plants).
