Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Sat): take an in-depth tour of Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, then have a few drinks at Obed & Isaac's Microbrewery, then steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, and finally do a tasting at Walnut Street Winery. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: don't miss a visit to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, get a sense of history and politics at Old State Capitol, then get to know the fascinating history of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, and finally identify plant and animal life at Lincoln Memorial Garden.
