Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Springfield: Lincolns New Salem State Park (in Petersburg), Great Rivers Scenic Route (in Alton) and Hannibal (Rockcliffe Mansion, Mark Twain Cave and Cameron Cave, & more). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, don't miss a visit to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, ponder the world of politics at Old State Capitol, and get engrossed in the history at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.

For reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Springfield online vacation builder .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 70°F, and evening lows to 47°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
