Springfield strikes the perfect balance in offering everything you would expect of a large urbanised city, whilst priding itself on being small enough to be personal and friendly. Although you are within a stone’s throw of hundreds of miles of lakeshores and forest trails, within the city limits there are plenty of cultural attractions and monuments, museums and malls.
As the site of a Civil War battle, there are many monuments in the city to the battles that happened here (such as Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield). However, the aptly named Battlefield Mall is the largest shopping centre in southwest Missouri, and will only go to war with your wallet. There is a fantastic range of eateries in Springfield, catering for all tastes, with great grills and busy sports bars on Glenstone Ave, through to one of five ‘Steak n’Shake’ restaurants dotted about town. The list of places to stay is equally impressive, with hotels near the airport and in town, some of which are even pet friendly. Book your discount hotel with EasyToBook.com.
