With all of the recent travel advisories, it is likely that you are staying home for spring break. You may be concerned that you are not going to have any cool stories to tell if you stay in Springfield. But, that is just not the case. This city is full of many unique things to do.
Springfield is one of the best suburban cities; with that come lots of places to go outside and experience nature. On your spring break list, be sure to check out some of the amazing parks and trails. We have everything from a Greenway Trail that is throughout the city all the way to Springfield Lake

After you go hiking, you are definitely going to be hungry. Try something new. Springfield is one of the best places for local food. You can go to the Aviary French Cafe or Maria's Mexican Restaurant. You can eat some fried tacos or amazing crepes. When . you are done eating you can go pick up some Andy's Frozen Custard. It is a great dessert.

Now after what some people may consider boring, you may wonder what fun things can I do here. Well, you can visit Wonders of Wildlife, this is a world-recognized aquarium just a few minutes from the campuses.
If that is not your thing, no fear we have some gaming places here too. You can go hit up 1984 downtown for some vintage gaming or Incredible Pizza. Those may sound childish. But, trust me -the over-analytical journalist that I am- it is fun! While you are downtown, go shopping.
We have some amazing little downtown shops from 5 Pound Apparel to Stick It In Your Ear. After all of these adventures, you may still be looking for more.
