Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Step off the beaten path and head to Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and Carthage Jail. Popular historic sites such as Eversgerd’s Civil War Fort and Lincoln Log Cabin are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Dickson Mounds Museum (in Lewistown), Atlanta Public Library (in Atlanta) and Evergreen Memorial Cemetery (in Bloomington). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Rees Memorial Carillon, walk around Luthy Botanical Garden, steep yourself in history at Great Western Depot, and admire the striking features of Elijah Iles House.

In July, daytime highs in Springfield are 86°F, while nighttime lows are 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
