Fun Ways to Exercise
If you are tired of walking a track or not seeing the sun in a gym, Honeysuckle Hill Farm has plenty of outdoor activities that provide a change of pace. Navigate your way through a challenging seven-acre corn maze in the fall and participate in a variety of farm activities to see what being a farmhand is like. Tee off at The Legacy Golf Course if you enjoy a good game. Raymond Floyd of the PGA Hall of Fame designed the course, and it is a perfect blend of challenge and fun. You will have fun whether you are a beginner or an expert.
Taste the South
When it comes to food, life in Springfield means one thing: Some of the best dining in the South. Barbecue fans should take note of Willie Mae’s Barbecue. Whether you like a little or a lot of sauce, they serve up your pulled pork and ribs just right. For something a little off the beaten path, enjoy Burdett's Tea Shop & Trading Company. Scones and fruit tea are a winning combination, but everything on the menu is delicious. Locals know that Torino Pizza Restaurant is the place to go for pies with crispy crusts and plenty of fresh toppings.
