We don't usually stay in a downtown hotel so my husband was really surprised that since we were here through the weekend the whole downtown "rolled up their sidewalk" so early. Not much to do and the restaurants were far and in between. What was open on Saturday was the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum which we wanted to see. Since most of the historical sites in the downtown area were in walking distance to each other, we got some much needed exercised.
In the other Presidential Museums we visited, we had to turn off the flash on our cameras but could still take our own photos. Not at the Lincoln Museum. Any kind of photography was prohibited except in a few areas. So we don't have the usual blitz of photos. I did buy some very nice post cards but those will have to only be in the scrapbook I'll someday put together.
The Museum was interactive and awesome! So very different from the other four we've been to in the last month (Reagan, Nixon, Eisenhower & Truman). I love history and love reading about it. Here, I was able to see the real documents that changed our HISTORY. This trip was so worth the 2100 miles we've done in six days.
