Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Lincoln Home National Historic Site as well as Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. Explore Springfield's surroundings by going to Centralia (Schwartz Orchard & Centralia Carillon), South Marcum campground (in Benton) and Hidden Lake Winery (in Aviston). There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Carlyle Sailing association, steep yourself in history at Eversgerd’s Civil War Fort, appreciate the history behind Lauterbach Giant, and take in the waterfront activity at Lake Springfield Marina.
