If you’re looking for a homegrown mix of historic charm and exciting city life, make Springfield, Missouri your next vacation destination. Hi, I’m Tyler! Right now, I’ve joined the millions of tourists who visit Springfield each year. Whether you’ve come for the scenery, the microbreweries or the shopping — downtown Springfield is the place to be. You’ll find that Springfield is all about celebrating friends, family and life’s simple pleasures. And you won’t find a place that embraces that sentiment more than Mother’s Brewing Company. While visiting this craft brewery, take advantage of Mother’s Brewery Tour every Saturday and find out how their brewing process pushes creative boundaries. Or find out for yourself and sample some of the subtle and complex beers at Mother’s Tasting Room! For a chic and elegant experience, stay in the heart of downtown at the Vandivort Hotel. This upscale boutique hotel took inspiration from the surrounding artistic community and commercial center, adding a modern aesthetic to the building’s historic roots. For a great dining experience, look no further than The Order, a sophisticated and social restaurant located in the hotel lobby. The Order offers modern Missouri cuisine and handcrafted cocktails to Vandivort guests and locals alike. When exploring past the hotel, I recommend a visit to Historic C Street, Springfield’s commercial center for nearly 150 years! Bustling with shopping, dining and all sorts of events, C Street is home to many locally owned businesses and trendy spots, such as Peruvian-inspired Café Cusco or the Pizza House, the go-to pizza joint for over 50 years. Then, treat yourself to a cup of Joe at Big Momma’s, a C Street favorite for its specialty coffee and homemade treats. And you definitely can’t leave without visiting Askinosie Chocolate. World-renowned for its direct-trade practices and meticulous quality, this is considered some of the best chocolate in the U.S. Take a tour of the factory and learn about the company’s rigorous 70-step process for crafting their chocolate. Oh and don’t worry, there are plenty of tasty samples throughout the tour. So there we have it! We saw a handful of the sites and destinations that this metropolitan city has to offer. But don't take my word for it; come check it out for yourself and feel right at home in Springfield, Missouri.
