Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Explore Springfield's surroundings by going to Children's Discovery Museum (in Normal), Miller Park Zoo (in Bloomington) and Lincolns New Salem State Park (in Petersburg). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Dana-Thomas House, don't miss a visit to Rees Memorial Carillon, appreciate the extensive heritage of Lincoln Home National Historic Site, and see the interesting displays at Illinois State Museum.

For reviews, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Springfield travel itinerary planner.

In September, daily temperatures in Springfield can reach 79°F, while at night they dip to 55°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
