Springfield

— 2 nights

Flower City

Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Springfield: Lincolns New Salem State Park (in Petersburg) and Peoria (Grand View Drive, Peoria Zoo, &more). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, browse the exhibits of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, don't miss a visit to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, and identify plant and animal life at Lincoln Memorial Garden.

For more things to do, photos, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Springfield tour itinerary planning website.

In June, daytime highs in Springfield are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 65°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
