I get that I should go to the Lincoln Home and the Presidential Museum.
I also know that I should get a Horseshoe and check out some Route 66 icons.
And it would be nice to see the Dana Thomas house.
And maybe try a meal at the Cozy Dog.
So please be kind and tell me: what's the real story?
-How can I best score tickets to the Home and the Museum without being disappointed?
-Where should I park?
-Should I go inside the Dana Thomas house?
-**What is your suggested sketch of the hours I'd spend there with my family with 3 kids aged 8-14 including eats?
My husband is a Lincoln/Civil War buff.
My kids like history, quirky local flavor, and are Man vs Food fans.
I am arriving somewhat early on a weekday morning in Aug (not State Fair week) and leaving either next afternoon or day following for Galena (not sure what to do there either.)
Thank you for your expertise!!
