Springfield, Missouri might not be at the top of your list of trips to take with your kids, but there are a lot of really entertaining and educational things to do in and around the area. Springfield has long been a destination on my list of places to take my kids and we finally did it. We didn’t manage to see everything, and I’m ready to head back there again soon. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know we were there as I posted during our trip. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, what are you waiting for?! It’s my favorite way to connect with my readers.
I’m excited to share the fun things we did on the trip: visit Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield, eat at Lambert’s Cafe, head over to the Bass Pro Shop, and then drive out of Springfield a ways to tour the Laura Ingalls Wilder Rocky Ridge Farm and Baker Creek Seed Store & Village, as well.
5 Fun Things to do with Kids in the Springfield, Missouri Area
We had a great time at the Wilson’s National Battlefield. Not only did we learn more about the Civil War than I have ever learned before, but the kids really enjoyed hiking around the area and seeing authentic cannons that were actually used there during the Civil War.
