Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Get some cultural insight at Lincoln Home National Historic Site and Old State Capitol. Popular historic sites such as Dana-Thomas House and Lincolns New Salem State Park are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Springfield: Outlets at Tuscola (in Tuscola), Lake Shelbyville (in Shelbyville) and Collinsville (World's Largest Catsup Bottle & Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, steep yourself in history at Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site, don't miss a visit to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, and ponder the world of politics at Illinois State Capitol.

To see photos, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Springfield journey website .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
