Start your journey with a delicious breakfast or lunch at the Lock 16 Café. Then climb aboard a replica 19th Century canal boat and step back in time to 1848. Mary Todd Lincoln will guide you on a tour of the western end of the I&M Canal, where she and Mr. Lincoln walked in 1848 between the canal boats and the river boats. Mrs. Lincoln will retrace an hour of the Lincoln family’s trip from Washington, DC, home to Springfield on the LaSalle Canal Boat. $8-$24. Reservations strongly recommended
