Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Step out of Springfield with an excursion to Lincolns New Salem State Park in Petersburg--about 32 minutes away. The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Dana-Thomas House, ponder the world of politics at Illinois State Capitol, get engrossed in the history at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, and see the interesting displays at Illinois State Museum.
