Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Popular historic sites such as Lincolns New Salem State Park and Old State Capitol are in your itinerary. Dana-Thomas House and Lincoln Home National Historic Site are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Springfield: Grand View Drive (in Peoria), Par-A-Dice Casino (in East Peoria) and Lake Shelbyville (in Shelbyville). The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at Lincoln Memorial Garden, and steep yourself in history at Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site.
