Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Lake Shelbyville and Illinois State Museum. Popular historic sites such as Lincoln Home National Historic Site and Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Springfield: Eckert's Belleville Farm (in Belleville), Peoria (Grand View Drive & Peoria Zoo) and Bloomington (Miller Park Zoo & David Davis Mansion State Historic Site). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, admire the natural beauty at Lincoln Memorial Garden, ponder the world of politics at Illinois State Capitol, and contemplate the long history of Lincolns New Salem State Park.

To find reviews, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Springfield trip itinerary site .

Expect a daytime high around 86°F in July, and nighttime lows around 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
