You can find lichens just about anywhere in the United States, as long as you are in good lichen habitat. The best places to look for lichens are in natural areas away from cities and highways. Lichens are found in a great diversity of habitats throughout the country. National Forests and Grasslands are great places to look for lichens.
Although some places are not lichen-specific viewing spots, there will always be some great lichens to see, as long as you know how to look for them. If you cannot find interesting lichen, at least you will be in a beautiful place.
