Illinois: Spend President's Day Weekend with a President
SPRINGFIELD, IL - Springfield is a true original, offering visitors access to world-renowned historic sites and museums devoted to the life and legacy of our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. The long President’s Day weekend in February is an opportunity to soak up some presidential history and beat the winter blues by enjoying a getaway to “Mr. Lincoln’s Hometown.”
Get to know Lincoln the man, the father, the husband and the politician as you can only do it 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 and the Lincoln Tomb, among others, and be transported to an era of gas lamps and hoop skirts, top hats and tin ceilings.
Then continue your journey by experiencing 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.
Entertain your curiosity with a trip that combines the best of our shared history with a spark of the unexpected over President’s Day weekend.
