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 Allerton Park & Retreat Center are in your itinerary. Let the collections at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and Illinois State Military Museum capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Hannibal (Karlocks Kars and Pop Culture Museum, Rockcliffe Mansion, &more), Monticello Railway Museum (in Monticello) and Decatur (Scovill Zoo, Children's Museum of Illinois, &more). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Great Western Depot, learn about all things military at Air Combat Museum, ponder the world of politics at Old State Capitol, and take an in-depth tour of The Lincoln Home Visitor Center.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
