Springfield Things to Do: 35 reviews and 43 photos

Every time I tell someone I'm from Springfield, they ask two things: One, have you ever been to Branson (the answer is yes and I would like it if I were over 65 years old).

I agree, if you only go once in your life, you should at least TRY to go to Branson. There are tons of shows and it's where Vegas headliners go to die.

Another question I often get is, "Have you ever been to Bass Pro?" Which of course, the answer is yes (I'm not much of an outdoorsman myself though). They are technically two "must-see" things to do. I also recommend the Meramec Caverns, just north of Springfield on 13 Highway.

Address: In or around Springfield
Directions: Branson--30 miles south of Springfield on 65 Highway; Bass Pro--Corner of Sunshine and Campbell; Meramec Caverns--take Kansas Expressway North, it turns into 13 Highway; Meramec is a couple miles up the road on the left hand side.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
