History comes alive in Springfield, where you can walk on the footsteps of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. Experience the city where Lincoln lived, where he raised his children, and where he was laid to rest. Join visitors from around the globe and travel to the city that celebrates Lincoln’s life and legacy. Springfield isn’t all about history, though. Come and enjoy the Springfield of today. Tour the Frank Lloyd Write-designed Dana-Thomas house, the Illinois State Museum, or spend a fun-filled day at Kinghts Action Park and Caribbean Water Adventure. Join us for one of our nearly 400 annual events including the Illinois State Fair, art fairs, plays, and BBQ events.
