Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: make a trip to Railsplitter Covered Wagon, then pause for some photo ops at Paul Bunyon Statue, then see the interesting displays at Children's Museum of Illinois, and finally take an in-depth tour of Union Station - Lincoln from History to Hollywood.
