When it’s time to rejuvenate and get out with your besties, Springfield really knows what a girl wants. From spas to delectable dining, you’ll find everything you need for the perfect girlfriend getaway.
Setting the tone for the weekend – or even a longer stay – is all about accommodations, and Springfield’s cozy inns are a great choice when you want to settle in and catch up with your buds.
Walnut Street Inn Bed & Breakfast in the city’s historic district and the Mansion at Elfindale are charming, centrally located in the city and have plenty of dining, shopping and nightlife options nearby. Or you can opt for one of Springfield’s 60 hotels at a variety of price points and locations.
Once you’re checked in, pamper yourself at one of several day spas you’ll find throughout Springfield. Dharma Day Spa on the city’s south side specializes in spa parties, Grove Spa in the central part of the city offers a full line of services and Zen 3 Spa and Bodyworks specializes in therapeutic and relaxation massage.
Continue the fun by treating yourself at Elle’s Patisserie, The Cup, Andy’s Frozen Custard or several other shops specializing in sweet treats. Now that you’re completely energized, it’s off to an afternoon of shopping at Battlefield Mall and exploring the boutiques you’ll find downtown and at other locations throughout the city.
By then you’ll be ready for a night on the town. Start with dinner: there are about 1,000 restaurants in and near Springfield so you can be sure to find one that suits everyone’s tastes.
You know your girlfriends all love the nightlife, and you’re in the right place for it: with live entertainment and dancing at nightclubs offering everything from country western music to a dueling piano bar. Be sure to check out the scene at the city’s downtown entertainment district, where you can prowl the night spots to find just the right one – or more!
