Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Take a break from Springfield with a short trip to Lincolns New Salem State Park in Petersburg, about 32 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, get a sense of history and politics at Old State Capitol, contemplate the long history of Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site, and admire the natural beauty at Lincoln Memorial Garden.
