Effingham is the largest city in, and the county seat of, Effingham County, Illinois, United States. Bring the kids along to Scovill Zoo and Children's Museum of Illinois. Change things up with these side-trips from Effingham: Casey (Giant Bird Cage, World's Largest Mailbox, & more) and Allerton Park & Retreat Center (in Monticello). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cross at the Crossroads, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Sara, and learn about winemaking at Tuscan Hills Winery.

In July, daily temperatures in Effingham can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
