Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Appreciate the collections at Illinois State Military Museum and Lincoln Heritage Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Washington Park and Pekin Park District. Change things up with these side-trips from Springfield: All Wars Museum (in Quincy), Children's Museum of Illinois (in Decatur) and Carthage (Carthage Jail & Kibbe Hancock Heritage Museum). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Monticello Railway Museum, make a trip to Rees Memorial Carillon, cool off at Knight's Action Park & Caribbean Water Adventure, and look for all kinds of wild species at Bremer Sanctuary.
