Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Dickson Mounds Museum and Litchfield Museum & Route 66 Welcome Center will appeal to museum buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Children's Museum of Illinois and Rock Springs Conservation Area & Nature Center. There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, take an in-depth tour of Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, contemplate the long history of Dana-Thomas House, and learn about winemaking at Walnut Street Winery.

To find maps and more tourist information, read Springfield visit planner .

Expect a daytime high around 86°F in July, and nighttime lows around 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
