Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln. As such, you'll find a wealth of places to visit downtown, including museums, former homes and offices, and gardens commemorating the 16th President of the United States. Although Lincoln-related attractions are Springfield's biggest draw, the city also offers additional historical homes and buildings, antique shops, boutiques, art galleries, independent record stores, and farm-to-table restaurants. The horseshoe sandwich--two hamburgers, each on a piece of toast with fries and cheese sauce on top--is a staple of city cuisine and contributes to Springfield's local vibe. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Springfield and add them to your vacation plans using our United States trip itinerary planning site.
