History spans over two centuries in Springfield, Ill., once home to President Abraham Lincoln and well-traveled Route 66. "Whether you come for a serious lesson in history or a light-hearted slice of classic Americana, Springfield has plenty to satisfy," says Midwest Living Magazine of the Illinois capital. Visitors can consume history -- and the original corn dog -- with this exclusive $99-per-night package from the State House Inn that cuts 45% off current prices through August.
Why we love it
- This offer also includes two tickets to the acclaimed Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, housing the world's largest collection of the papers and possessions of Lincoln and his family – including the original Gettysburg Address. A $25 gift card to nearby Café Brio and two drinks at the hotel's bar are also included. Suites feature a separate bedroom and living area with a futon, plus a microwave and fridge. Guests receive complimentary bottled water at check-in, plus free Wi-Fi and hot breakfast each morning.
- From State House Inn, walk 10 minutes to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library passing by the Old State Capitol, where Lincoln announced "A house divided against itself cannot stand" in the days leading up to the Civil War. Just past downtown, head to Cozy Dog Drive In for the original corn dog and relive Route 66's heyday.
- 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.
