Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Springfield: Lincolns New Salem State Park (in Petersburg) and Paul Bunyon Statue (in Atlanta). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, make a trip to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, ponder the world of politics at Illinois State Capitol, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Lincoln Home National Historic Site.

For traveler tips, ratings, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Springfield trip planner .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
