Low/No Cost To-dos in Springfield during International

The other thread ( was getting a bit long, so unless there are questions, here is my last post on Springfield Mo:

Low or No cost things to do in Springfield, Mo. during the International:

Hike or view the exhibits at the Springfield Nature Center (free),

See the national, judged exhibit of Watercolor USA at the Springfield Art Museum (free),

Pools (admission), Golf courses, possibly including the renovation-in-progress lighted nine hole course (green fees), tennis courts (free), picnic or let the kids play at the many parks (free), Springfield Park Board,

Attend "Firefall". Performances, hot air balloons, symphony concert, fireworks. June 25 (admission $8 per car, or take shuttle bus, $3 person). Entertainment starts at noon, “Concert in the Sky” starts at 9:45. Expect 60 - 70 thousand people.

Attend “I Love America” concerts and fireworks July 4 (free). Expect 80 - 90 thousand in attendance.

Shop, or just view the four aquariums, indoor waterfall, ducks, turtles, and mounted animals on exhibit at Bass Pro Shops

Hike or bike one of the Greenways Trails (free),

Shop for direct from the farm produce at the two Farmers Markets.

Hike, bike, or study the history of the Wilson Creek National Battlefield ($5/car, or $3 per person). . If you have any interest in Civil War history you will want to see this as well as Pea Ridge National Battlefield in N.W. Arkansas.

Perhaps most important of all - come back some time when it isn't blazing hot!

Have a safe trip!
