You will Fall In Love With Springfiel, MO

Springfield Mo is a beautiful city with a lot to see and do. Springfield is the third largest city in Mo and is in Green County. Springfield has a population of around 159,000, and is recognized as the birth place of route 66. In 2008, America's Promise Alliance ranked Springfield among its "100 Best Communities for Young People" for the three years in a row.

I love Springfield, it is a wonderful city to live and visit. I have made a list of my top 3 must see places when you visit Springfield, but there is so much to do here do not limit yourself to just this list.

1. Springfield Conservation Nature Center

What I love about this place is it's all about nature it has different trials, and it has a bird watching facility that is inside the center and another one on the James River. It is on the back side of Springfield Lake it is so peaceful and beautiful. I highly recommend taking children with you. I have seen deer, bobcats, wild turkey, raccoons, Canadian geese, and ducks, and it's always fun, and my family loves it, and best of all it is free.

3. Japanese Stroll Garden

I've been to the stroll gardens many times, and I fall in love with it every time we go. The Garden is so peaceful. It is a wonderful place if you want to take a nice relaxing walk and just get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It is well worth seeing. The Koi pond and all of the gorgeous landscape is what makes this place such a very peaceful and enjoyable place to visit.

The Garden is located on 7.5 acre in Nathanael Greene Park at 2400 S. Scenic. And only cost $3 for anyone over 12 years of age.


These are all wonderful attractions, and show just how beautiful Springfield is. There are so many more must see spots but these are my most loved. I hope you plan a vacation soon and come see this wonderful city.
