Why should I move to Springfield?
Springfield is the capital of Illinois, and its past is linked with that of a former Springfield resident, Abraham Lincoln, who went on to be the 16th president of the United States. As the nexus of Illinois political activity, Springfield is a great place for those involved or interested in Illinois politics. Springfield's climate features four distinct seasons with hot summers and cold, rather snowy winters, so residents should enjoy--or at least tolerate--a range of temperatures and types of precipitation. Home to many well-known writers and artists, Springfield boasts a robust literary tradition that is supported by the city's four insitutions of higher learning. Nearby Lake Springfield also offers boating and fishing.
Will I need a car in Springfield?
Probably. The number of people who take public transportation in Springfield is 11 percent less than the Illinois average and 37 percent greater than the national average. The Springfield Mass Transit District (SMTD) provides local bus service to Springfield, but routes are limited and may run infrequently. Amtrak passenger trains that operate between Chicago and St. Louis also serve Springfield, but they are best for intercity transportation.
Where are some of the best places for dining out in Springfield?
It all depends on your budget. Low-budget options include Charlie Parker's, Cozy Dog Drive In, Feed Store, Head West Sub Stop, Joe Roger's Chili, Maid-Rite Sandwich Shop, and Vic's Pizza. For moderately priced food, try Holy Land Diner, Incredibly Delicious, Robbie's Restaurant, or Saputo Twins Corner, while slightly higher end places include Fritz's Wagon Wheel, Maldaner's Restaurant, and Old Luxembourg Inn. Darcy's Pint is a good place to try the horseshoe sandwich, which originated in Springfield sometime in the early 20th century at the Leland Hotel and are not generally served outside of Illinois. A traditional horseshoe consists of two hamburgers each served on a piece of toast with fries and cheese sauce, but a pony sandwich, half the size, is sufficent for most.
