We'll be visiting Springfield June 28-July 1. We have some general ideas of things to do. And we're going to a Cardinals game June 30.

Any other somewhat affordable activities for 2 middle-aged people, 3 young people (age 18-23), and a senior citizen? We've checked out the Springfield website and know some things.

We've been to Springfield plenty of times (it's about 3 hours from here) and we have friends that live out that direction. I was just wondering if there's some off-beat places to check out that might not be in the travel guides.

Also, our motel doesn't have a pool (Expedia didn't let us pick a hotel, we just gave them specifics and they gave us one (for a good price) but there's no pool). Is there a city pool? We know about White Water (we've been there before) in Branson, but it's a little more expensive than we're willing to spend.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Check out the Hot Glass studio (Campbell Ave)...you can watch them blow art glass...nice art glass.

There is a sports hall of fame (Stan Musial Dr) if you like sports....my husband thought it was pretty cool.

Asknoskie (sp?) chocolate factory gives tours and samples...they make great chocolate.
