Springfield, Illinois, is the home of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, a great educational travel destination. Our whole family, grandma included, took this educational trip together, and we all loved it. This state-of-the-art museum is truly fascinating, makes history come alive, and reveals Lincoln’s life in an unforgettable way. Be sure to allow plenty of time to tour the entire museum! Check out their Learning Resources on their website.
There are other things to do in Springfield, too, such as touring the famous Frank Lloyd Wright Dana-Thomas House which is amazing. Also, the old “Route 66” goes through Springfield and there are all sorts of relic eating places and memorabilia.
