St. Get out of town with these interesting St. Pete Beach side-trips: Sarasota (Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, The Ringling, & more), Siesta Beach (in Siesta Key) and Legoland Florida Resort (in Winter Haven). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at The Dali Museum, enjoy the sand and surf at Madeira Beach, wander the streets of Pass-a-Grille, and fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

To see where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the St. Pete Beach trip planner .

Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Springfield is known for museums, historic sites, parks, zoos & aquariums, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get engrossed in the history at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, contemplate the long history of Dana-Thomas House, make a trip to Rees Memorial Carillon, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Lincoln Home National Historic Site.

Plan my trip to Springfield with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
