According to the travel website called thegetaway.com, Illinois is home to a uniquely spiritual place where you can "free your mind" it's called the Baha'i House of Worship. The Baha'i House of Worship is located in Wilmette (which is just north of Chicago), and on the website they say...

"This stunning temple is worth visiting for its beautiful architecture and artistic design. The interior contains white quartz and cement walls that have been intricately carved for a lace-like appearance. Visitors of all faiths are welcome at the temple, and many people find it a peaceful and meditative experience."

There are 9 other places on the websites list, places as Crater Lake in Oregon, Salvation Mountain in California, and Linville Gorge in North Carolina, to see the complete list click here!

I have actually visited the Baha'i House of Worship and it is incredibly impressive. You can walk around the building and spend time in the beautiful gardens, and inside it looks like a something that was built 2,000 years ago. According to Wikipedia.org...

"The Baháʼí House of Worship in Wilmette, Illinoisis a Baháʼí temple. It is the second Baháʼí House of Worship ever constructed and the oldest one still standing. It is one of eight continental temples, constructed to serve all of North America...The temples are not intended as a local meeting place, but are instead open to the public and used as a devotional space for people of any faith."
