Flower City

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. With our custom trip planner, United States vacations can be built around trips to Springfield and other destinations in United States.
