Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
You'll explore and learn at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and Lincoln Home National Historic Site. Explore Springfield's surroundings by going to Lake Shelbyville (in Shelbyville) and Lincolns New Salem State Park (in Petersburg). The adventure continues: examine the collection at Illinois State Museum, contemplate the long history of Dana-Thomas House, don't miss a visit to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, and take in nature's colorful creations at Lincoln Memorial Garden.
