Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Let the collections at Lincoln Home National Historic Site and Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum capture your imagination. Lincolns New Salem State Park and Lincoln Memorial Garden are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Springfield: Par-A-Dice Casino (in East Peoria) and Lake Shelbyville (in Shelbyville). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House and see the interesting displays at Illinois State Museum.

Start your trip to Springfield by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

August in Springfield sees daily highs of 84°F and lows of 64°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
