If you happen to be going through Springfield, Illinois, plan to stop by Lincoln’s Tomb. It’s easy to find, and won’t take you very long.

If you go, here are some tips:

  • Silence your cell phone before you go in. It’s about respect.
  • Rub Lincoln’s nose for luck.
  • Look for the hidden horse inside the building where the tomb is. Hint: it is much like looking for animals in clouds.
