Land of Lincoln Getaway

February is shaping up to be a banner month for the country’s 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. Soon the nation will commemorate Presidents Day, followed by the Academy Awards where the movie bearing the former president’s name is nominated for a whopping 12 Oscars. And today, we celebrate the man’s 204th birthday.

Join in this year’s celebration with a getaway to the Land of Lincoln -- Springfield, Ill. For $99, this exclusive Travelzoo deal includes two tickets to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum and an overnight stay in a suite steps from the Old State Capitol, where the president infamously announced, “a house divided against itself cannot stand.” The Museum has garnered national attention for its extensive exhibits and displays of original artifacts -- including the original Gettysburg Address.

Springfield is a three-hour drive from Chicago and 1.5 hours from St. Louis. Or opt for a ride on Amtrak from both cities -- the hotel is three blocks from the station.
