Springfield Travel Guide: 146 reviews and 158 photos

The town of Seymour is small, but like a lot of Springfield the whole area is spreading out. This is my brothers home in the country, not far from the town, but quite and peaceful

Map of the Area

There are a lot of little things that can be appreciated in Springfield area. The town has grown to a size that makes it almost unmanueverable because traffic comes to s stand still in many areas. They have every fast food and chain restaurant you could dream and a couple of good local choices to eat-like Crazy Horse.

It may be one of the local specials now -but still competes with down home gravy and biscuits a way down the road a piece

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A good town to still raise the kids.
  • Cons:TAkes forever to get places due to the traffic
  • In a nutshell:Springfield is now a traffic mess-many shops and retail

    I’ve heard about Branson and the once-famous country singers who perform there, but I didn’t know they had made a full-size replica of the Titanic – thousands of miles from the nearest ocean!
    Actually it seems a bit macabre to me, since my grandfather would have gone down with the Titanic if he hadn’t changed his booking at short notice:

    The caverns sound interesting with canoeing and all the rides. Throwing rolls around for your clientelle to catch is a strange sort of entertainment.
