Springfield, MO

Updated: September 22nd, 2020

Below is a list of the best places I would visit on a trip to this location. My picks fit my personality and interest. Everyone has a different interest, so you may not like everything I listed, which is fine.  If you like a place, I recommend saving it to Google Maps for a future trip down the road. I made sure to include the address or GPS to make it easier to find.  You can find out more about me in the "About Me" section to see if we share common interests.

​In the info below, the yellow cost number is just an estimated amount at the time I checked their website, over time the amount could change.  With the cost of a hotel room, I'm pricing a queen bed for two people for a night on the weekend and the amount shown is before taxes.  These figures are just a rough estimate on what places could cost, so if incorrect I apologize.
