Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Start off your visit on the 19th (Thu): ponder the world of politics at Old State Capitol, take an in-depth tour of Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, then steep yourself in history at Lincoln Home National Historic Site, and finally steep yourself in history at Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site. On your second day here, steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, then get a sense of history and 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.
