Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Start off your visit on the 31st (Tue): examine the collection at Illinois State Museum, get to know the fascinating history of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, then get engrossed in the history at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, and finally don't miss a visit to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials. Here are some ideas for day two: examine the collection at Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Museum, contemplate the long history of Lincolns New Salem State Park, get a sense of history and politics at Old State Capitol, then contemplate the long history of Dana-Thomas House, and finally admire the natural beauty at Lincoln Memorial Garden.
