Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Kick off your visit on the 18th (Fri): contemplate the long history of Dana-Thomas House, admire the landmark architecture of Elijah Iles House, then browse the collection at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, and finally don't miss a visit to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials. Here are some ideas for day two: appreciate the extensive heritage of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, then get a sense of history and politics at Old State Capitol, then get a sense of history and politics at Illinois State Capitol, and finally steep yourself in history at Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site.
