Pick up one of the rental cars in Springfield available through CarRentals.com and drive to check out the Old State Capitol building. The building should give you a glimpse into the city’s past, as the building was built in the 1800s. After checking out this historic piece of the Land of Lincoln, drive to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum to learn a bit more about the life of the former president. If weather permits, visit the Margery Adams Wildlife Sanctuary and hike through stunning foliage. Of course, you need to stop by downtown Springfield to chat up the locals. Browse quaint cafes and thrift shops and soak up the Springfield community.
