Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Go for a jaunt from Springfield to Petersburg to see Lincolns New Salem State Park about 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, take an in-depth tour of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, ponder the world of politics at Illinois State Capitol, and see the interesting displays at Illinois State Museum.
