Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Illinois State Museum and IL Route 66 Association Hall of Fame & Museum. Family-friendly places like Peoria Zoo and Henson Robinson Zoo will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Springfield: Pontiac (Museum of the Gilding Arts & Pontiac-Oakland Automobile Museum), Grand View Drive (in Peoria) and Miller Park Zoo (in Bloomington). And it doesn't end there: get lost in a book at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, admire the natural beauty at Lincoln Memorial Garden, steep yourself in history at Old State Capitol, and get a sense of history and politics at Illinois State Capitol.

To see more things to do, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Springfield itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 85°F in June, and nighttime lows around 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
