Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Eversgerd’s Civil War Fort and Lincolns New Salem State Park will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from the city and head to Bremer Sanctuary and Fox Ridge State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Springfield side-trips: Pontiac (Museum of the Gilding Arts, International Wall Dog Mural and Sign Art Museum, & more), Children's Museum of Illinois (in Decatur) and Museum of the Grand Prairie (in Mahomet). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Korean War National Museum, get to know the fascinating history of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, get a sense of history and politics at Old State Capitol, and see the interesting displays at Discovery Depot Children's Museum.

For more things to do, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Springfield online tour planner .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
