Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
On the 14th (Sat), take an in-depth tour of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, then contemplate the long history of Dana-Thomas House, then examine the collection at Illinois State Museum, and finally ponder the world of politics at Illinois State Capitol. Keep things going the next day: take an in-depth tour of Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Union Square Park, then don't miss a visit to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, then get a sense of history and politics at Old State Capitol, and finally steep yourself in history at Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site.

For where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Springfield trip planner .

In July, daily temperatures in Springfield can reach 86°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
