Getaway to Your Own City

If you’re ready to get enjoy a relaxing weekend away from home but don’t want to spend half a day in the car, there are plenty of places to rest your feet here in Springfield. 

Walnut Street Inn

900 E. Walnut St., Springfield, 417-864-6346,

This boutique bed and breakfast provides a delicious breakfast by a C.I.A. chef, and the main house has six bedrooms, two parlors, a dining room, a kitchen and an expansive deck that’s great for stargazing at night. 


Tudor Cottage

For more of a budget-friendly escape that will still whisk you away for an indulgent and relaxing staycation, we found just the place thanks to This charming Tudor cottage calls the historic Walnut Street area home and is beautifully decorated with wood floors, marble countertops, unique art throughout the home, fur blankets on both beds and several chandeliers. Bonus: The home is owned by Springfield artist Julie Blackmon who originally bought the house to use as a studio space. But with a cozy wood-burning fireplace and a small brick patio that screams cuddle time, it’s no wonder she opened it up to other Springfield natives who are looking for an easy getaway. 


Ramada Plaza Hotel

2546 N. Glenstone Ave., Springfield, 417-866-5253,

If you think you’ve already seen everything this hotel has to offer, you haven’t seen the Paradise Suite. This well-kept secret getaway opened a little more than a year ago, but few know it exists. With two stories, a king-size bed, its own entrance, an impressive spiral staircase, an overflow Jacuzzi and a TV housed behind the bathroom mirror, it’s no wonder this secret getaway isn’t advertised on Ramada’s website. The cost per night starts at $279, and it’s worth it.
