While touring the environs northwest of Springfield, you’ll encounter the rural charm of pastureland and farms, rivers and wetlands, and hills and ravines. And how could any Springfield-area excursion take place without at least one significant Lincolnian encounter? At nearly the halfway point, you’ll pass by a small museum that highlights one of Honest Abe’s most celebrated achievements as an Illinois politician. Not long after striking out on this ride, it becomes clear that Springfield is a fairly compact city.
