- The Lincoln thing… Need we say more?
- Kid-favorite dining just across the street – and down the street, and up the street…
- And did we mention Springfield parks? From the Sangamon River trails at Carpenter Park to the Southwind solar bee to Henson Robinson Zoo on Lake Springfield – Springfield has a park for you and your children!
