Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Lincoln Memorial Garden and Dana-Thomas House. Museum-lovers will appreciate Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Illinois State Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Springfield: Bloomington (Miller Park Zoo & Beer Nuts Co Store-Plant), Children's Museum of Illinois (in Decatur) and Lincolns New Salem State Park (in Petersburg). There's lots more to do: stop by Beachy's Bulk Foods, make a trip to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, explore the different monuments and memorials at Camp Butler National Cemetery, and get a sense of history and politics at Illinois State Capitol.
