    This is a fun historical area near downtown Springfield. You can find costumed guides leading tours not only of the Lincoln home but also of the neighborhood where Abraham Lincoln lived.

    Lincoln's Home consists of a few blocks of Lincoln's neighborhood. The houses and streets are (mostly) kept the same since the 1880s. Walking through the streets felt like I went back in time. It was awesome.

    It is a nice walking tour. You used to be able to go inside; to tour the various homes. The kitchen always smelled like cinnamon.
