President’s Day in Abraham Lincoln’s Hometown

Take advantage of the long President’s Day weekend in February to experience history first-hand in Abraham Lincoln’s hometown of Springfield, Illinois.

Springfield is a true original, the only place in the world to see such an extensive collection of historic sites and museums devoted to the life and legacy of our 16th President. Get to know Lincoln the man, the father, the husband and the politician by walking the same streets he walked over 150 years ago.

Visit the Lincoln Home National Historic Site, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, the Old State Capitol, the Lincoln Tomb, and a host of other sites that will transport you the city that Lincoln loved.  In fact, strolling along the streets of our historic downtown, you can almost imagine Lincoln striding purposefully toward his law office, or bounding up the steps of the capitol building.

When you’re done touring, stick around to experience a different kind of authentic Springfield. Sip a classic cocktail or enjoy a locally-sourced meal from the heartland of America.  Browse shops and galleries in the charming downtown and relax at a choice of accommodations from intimate inns to full-service hotels.

President’s Day is Monday, February 19th. Immerse yourself in history with a visit to Always Legendary Springfield, Illinois, hometown of our greatest president, Abraham Lincoln.
