Springfield

— 6 nights

Flower City

Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Popular historic sites such as Lincoln Home National Historic Site and Dana-Thomas House are in your itinerary. Let the collections at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and Rockcliffe Mansion capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Decatur (Scovill Zoo, Children's Museum of Illinois, &more), Hannibal (Karlocks Kars and Pop Culture Museum & Big River Train Town) and Monticello (Allerton Park & Retreat Center & Monticello Railway Museum). The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at Air Combat Museum, contemplate the long history of Old State Capitol, get engrossed in the history at The Lincoln Home Visitor Center, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Camp Butler National Cemetery.
