Flower City

Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
On the 29th (Sat), pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, take an in-depth tour of The Lincoln Home Visitor Center, then learn about all things military at Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Museum, then let the kids burn off some steam at Washington Park, and finally make a trip to Rees Memorial Carillon.

For reviews, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Springfield trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 84°F in August, and nighttime lows around 64°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
