Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Rees Memorial Carillon and Hoogland Center for the Arts. Get out of town with these interesting Springfield side-trips: Lincoln Heritage Museum (in Lincoln), Decatur (Rock Springs Conservation Area & Nature Center & Children's Museum of Illinois) and Urbana (Urbana Public Library & Alma Mater). There's much more to do: let the kids burn off some steam at Washington Park, admire the striking features of Elijah Iles House, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, and stroll around Luthy Botanical Garden.

In June in Springfield, expect temperatures between 85°F during the day and 65°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
