The city is served by the Springfield Airport which is connected to the city via taxis or special hotel shuttles however if you’re not staying at a hotel you’ll want to employ our Springfield car rental services so that you can have a car ready and waiting at the airport as soon as you land. The city is also reachable by train and bus routes.
As mentioned earlier, Springfield is best known for being the home of Abraham Lincoln for twenty-four years and most of its historic sites are related to his life and work. The city is a definite must-see for any Abraham Lincoln buff.
First on the list would be the Lincoln Home National Historic Site. This is where you’ll see Lincoln’s residence of seventeen years which has been restored to how it looked back in 1860. The on-site Visitor Center offers a good range of exhibits that are changed periodically as well as an orientation film. This attraction is an entire site because it includes the surrounding four block area which has been preserved to look as it did during the President’s time.
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is of course located here as well; here you can see some very rare artifacts from the man himself as well as others in his entourage at the time.
The Old State Capitol building is also worth a visit as this is where mister Lincoln served his final term in the Illinois House of Representatives and is is also the place where he gave his famous “House Divided’ speech.
Of course no tour of the famous Lincoln sites would be complete without paying your respects at the great man’s tomb which is located within the Oak Ridge Cemetery.
These are actually only a couple of the more important attractions and sights that the city has to offer its visitors so make sure to employ our Springfield car hire services as a means of seeing as many of them as possible.
