Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
On the 30th (Thu), get a sense of history and politics at Old State Capitol, take an in-depth tour of Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, then contemplate the long history of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, and finally steep yourself in history at Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, then ponder the world of politics at Illinois State Capitol, then steep yourself in history at Lincolns New Salem State Park, and finally don't miss a visit to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials.

In August, daytime highs in Springfield are 84°F, while nighttime lows are 64°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
