Welcome to Springfield!
A mosaic of legendary and modern experience awaits.
Springfield, the iconic heart of America, the capital of Illinois, and the hometown of Abraham Lincoln, is filled with treasures, authentic experiences and nostalgia for days gone by.
A visit to Springfield is a step back in time – to the days when Abraham Lincoln lived and worked here, where he raised his children, and where he was laid to rest at the end of his life. It’s also a nostalgic cruise in a classic car along historic Route 66, with roadside diners and drive-in movies. We’re an original experience, with museums, historic sites, world-class architecture, memorials and more.
While you’re soaking up all of our history, you’ll be dazzled by a lively city with over 400 special events each year, a vibrant arts scene, farm-to-table dining, shopping and plenty of recreational options. With a wide range of lodging, we’ve got plenty of options to suit every taste.
We invite you to be inspired in Springfield. Relax, reconnect, learn something new and revisit an old favorite. We look forward to welcoming you for a legendary experience. You’ll find your passion here in the iconic heart of America.
