One of the best places in the city to get a piece of pie, or breakfast, or just good food. Open late, till 11:00pm

Lambert’s Cafe

Something uniquely Ozark. Home of the Throwed Rolls. Good food, can handle large gatherings, and a good family atmosphere. This is a must see place!

Bambino’s Cafe

One of the best Italian places in the city. Try the Bambino or the Mama, both are just excellent.

Thing to do.

Bass Pro Shops

1935 S Campbell
Springfield, MO 65807

The granddaddy of all outdoor stores: They have a new aquarium and museum, plenty of outdoor activities, shopping and supplies. If you’re into the outdoors, this is the place to go.

Fantastic Caverns

4872 N Farm Road
Springfield, MO 35803

A ride-through cave, no, seriously it’s that big. A 55 minute round trip tour. Considering the head in southern Missouri at this time of year, the cool 60 degrees in the cavern would be a welcome break.

Laura Ingalls Wilder Home and Museum

3068 State Highway A
Mansfield, MO 65704

See where the books were written. The museum has Pa’s fiddle, Laura’s manuscripts, and many other artifacts.

Silver Dollar City

A great amusement park with rollercoasters, arts and crafts, and a western feel.
