So I might be taking a job in Springfield. I've never even been to the state of Missouri outside one night in KC. But the job offer is compelling. Thinking about driving out there sometime in the next couple of weeks to check it out. I'd be coming from Maryland, specifically the D.C metro area. I've heard mixed things about Springfield on the whole but generally good things about the state of Missouri.

It is a very tough one-day drive from D.C. to Springfield, Mo. I've done it, but do not recommend it. Realistically it is two nine hour days on the road. With meals, hotels, and all the other associated expenses you might consider flying and renting a car.

You offer far too little information for anyone to respond. Consider your budget, housing preferences, job location and maximum commute time, and the type of neighborhood desired.

Meanwhile, there are many threads on this forum concerning Springfield neighborhoods and surrounding communities that you may wish to browse.
