Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Bring the kids along to Peoria Zoo and Lake Shelbyville. Venture out of the city with trips to Curtis Orchard & Pumpkin Patch (in Champaign), Grand View Drive (in Peoria) and Miller Park Zoo (in Bloomington). Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, see the interesting displays at Illinois State Museum, get a sense of history and politics at Illinois State Capitol, and steep yourself in history at Old State Capitol.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Springfield vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Expect a daytime high around 86°F in July, and nighttime lows around 66°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
