Springfield

— 5 nights

Flower City

Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Change things up with these side-trips from Springfield: Hannibal (Mark Twain Cave and Cameron Cave, Mark Twain Boyhood Home, &more), Lincolns New Salem State Park (in Petersburg) and Peoria (Caterpillar Visitors Center, Peoria Zoo, &more). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, don't miss a visit to Lincoln Tomb & War Memorials, examine the collection at Illinois State Museum, and contemplate the long history of Dana-Thomas House.
