Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Lincoln Home National Historic Site and Illinois State Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Outlets at Tuscola and St. Clair Square. Venture out of the city with trips to Lake Shelbyville (in Shelbyville), Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site (in Collinsville) and Lincolns New Salem State Park (in Petersburg). Next up on the itinerary: get advice or help at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, contemplate the long history of Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site, ponder the world of politics at Old State Capitol, and don't miss a visit to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials.
