Although the greater Springfield area is home to tens of thousands of people, it retains a small-town feeling. There are lovely, affordable homes on quiet streets, where you can garden in your backyard and invite friends and neighbors over for barbecues. You're in the heartland of the U.S. and feel it in the lifestyle. The city is known for its good restaurants, and also for two particular foods: corndog on a stick (known as a cozy dog) and horseshoe sandwiches.

But even with its small-town vibe, there's no shortage of activities in and around the city. You can visit the many historical sites dedicated to Lincoln, including the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. The city's botanical gardens and wildlife sanctuary are big draws for nature-lovers; with dozens of parks in the city and easy access to some beautiful hiking trails, you'll have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.

If you love the arts, the Hoogland Center for the Arts puts on year-round performances in theater, ballet, and orchestral music, while the "Muni" (Springfield Municipal Opera) brings Broadway musicals to you outdoors every summer. The Illinois State Fair is one of the festivals that will keep you entertained every year. For shopping, you don't need to look further than the enormous White Oaks Mall. And if you occasionally miss big city life, both Chicago and St. Louis are within easy reach.
