Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Lincoln Home National Historic Site and Dana-Thomas House. Museum-lovers will appreciate Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and Illinois State Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Springfield: Lincolns New Salem State Park (in Petersburg), Pekin Park District (in Pekin) and Pontiac (IL Route 66 Association Hall of Fame & Museum & Route 66 Shield Mural). There's still lots to do: try your luck at Par-A-Dice Casino, admire the natural beauty at Lincoln Memorial Garden, take in the views from Sugar Creek Covered Bridge, and steep yourself in history at Old State Capitol.

For reviews, maps, ratings, and tourist information, read our Springfield trip itinerary site .

In July, daily temperatures in Springfield can reach 86°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
