Lincoln and more in Springfield
Generations of Illinois kids have traveled to Springfield for state capital outings. Now there's even more for both kids and adults to see: the engaging Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, which took nearly 16 years and more than $115 million to create.
Beyond the museum, visitors can explore many sites important to the days when Lincoln worked and lived in Springfield. Plus, the city has beautiful parks when you need a break from historical sightseeing. And you can get a taste of the storied Route 66, especially if you're in town for the annual Mother Road Festival.
