Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Meadowbrook Park and Champaign Public Library. Venture out of the city with trips to Urbana (Market at the Square, Urbana Public Library, & more), Champaign (Market Place Shopping Center, Hessel Park, & more) and Decatur (Wabash Depot Antique Mall, Children's Museum of Illinois, & more). And it doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at Livingston County War Museum, hike along Constitution Trail, contemplate the long history of Edwards Place Historic Home, and look for gifts at Scheels.

August in Springfield sees daily highs of 84°F and lows of 64°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
