What's Springfield Like?

Springfield exit signIt's not too big and not too small.

Springfield is Missouri's third-largest city, with about 350,000 people living in the metropolitan area. By comparison, the St. Louis metro area has 2.8 million people. So Springfield is large enough to let you feel the electric vibe of a city, but small enough so you won't feel lost—or in danger. Springfield's violent-crime rate is well below the national average.

It has thousands of places to eat, shop and have fun.
  • 500 restaurants
  • 1,500 retail shopping outlets
  • Four, large, movie-theatre complexes 
  • The Springfield Cardinals baseball team
  • A performing arts center (on campus) that draws Broadway plays and nationally known entertainers
It's convenient to other metro areas.
  • Springfield is less than three hours from Kansas City
  • Three hours from St. Louis
  • Two hours from the Lake of the Ozarks
  • Three hours from Columbia
  • About 45 minutes from Branson.

You can get here quicker if you choose to fly into the city's regional airport, which is served by major airline carriers.
