Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Lake Shelbyville and Constitution Trail. Get in touch with nature at Rock Springs Conservation Area & Nature Center and Forest Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Springfield: Lincoln Log Cabin (in Lerna) and Peoria PlayHouse Children's Museum (in Peoria). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Edwards Place Historic Home, explore the different monuments and memorials at Camp Butler National Cemetery, and cool off at Knight's Action Park & Caribbean Water Adventure.

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

Expect a daytime high around 86°F in July, and nighttime lows around 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
