    cops galore

    Springfield has tons of cops just waiting to give you a dwi (driving while impaired) or mip (minor in posession.) Never even consider drinking and driving in this town because they are very harsh and it is just safer for everyone if you just take a taxi! yellow cab's number is 417-862-5511 and metropolitan cab is 417-865-7700. Metropolitan cab doesn't charge for extra passengers and is cheaper, but yellow cab will show up faster since they have more cars. Oh and if you live on campus beware of the bike cops.

    However I like to get drunk and then talk to the cops, who know's what i was asking them (it was after the mardi gras pub crawl) maybe to handcuff me????

    Few families come to Springfield, Missouri, without stopping by the Bass Pro Shops, which rightfully has something for the whole family. Many spots throughout this gigantic emporium are designated as photo opportunities, but for the very young, the taxidermist's industry might be too frightening to behold up close.

    Beware the Forsaken

    entrance to Commercial Street along the tracks

    The historic area on Commercial Street (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) is now struggling with both the forward-thinking rejuvenation of its historic fronts and buildings and the present-day deterioration of its inner city. Alongside historic facades bearing dates as early as 1883, the casual visitor will encounter soup kitchens and shelters for the homeless. This unfortunate fact of American life in Springfield, and specifically its concentration on Commercial Street, are retarding the transformation of this once-central urban corridor.

  • DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME IN SPRINGFIELD

    For the size of town it's is, there's nothing to do there! Very boring place. It reminds me of a suburb of a big city where you have to drive miles and miles for something to do. The people are okay but only entertainment seems to be is for drinkers. If you don't fish or hunt you have nothing to do there. I have always wonder how it grown to the size it is without having some kind entertainment.

    Springfield, and Missouri, is one of the most enforced DWI areas. If you party, or going to have fun, have a designated driver, or take a cab. Getting caught can certaintly sour a vacation or visit.
