Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Edwards Place Historic Home and Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Lincoln Home National Historic Site and Lincoln Memorial Garden. Get out of town with these interesting Springfield side-trips: Lincoln Log Cabin (in Lerna), Tuscan Hills Winery (in Effingham) and Beachy's Bulk Foods (in Arthur). And it doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at Livingston County War Museum, make a splash at Knight's Action Park & Caribbean Water Adventure, steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, and see the interesting displays at International Wall Dog Mural and Sign Art Museum.

To see maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Springfield itinerary planner .

Expect a daytime high around 84°F in August, and nighttime lows around 64°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
