Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Start off your visit on the 13th (Thu): appreciate the extensive heritage of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, then steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, and then contemplate the long history of Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site. On the 14th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take an in-depth tour of Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, then make a trip to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, and then get a sense of history and politics at Old State Capitol.
