Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.

There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Dana-Thomas House, visit Hoogland Center for the Arts, take an in-depth tour of The Lincoln Home Visitor Center, and take in the views from Sugar Creek Covered Bridge.
