A day trip to Springfield, MO

There are lots to do around the Branson area, and Springfield is just 40 minutes up the interstate.  It's a town of about 150,000 people, and everything you could possibly want in a smaller city type atmosphere... we'll be exploring the area around Branson as we countdown to September 2012 !

Lets start with shopping I'm looking for chocolate - husband is looking for toys. It looks like we can find both ....

Now this sounds like my type of place. I may have to check out the cyber-special before I go. The website lists sooooo much to choose from. Fudge, gift baskets, sugar free chocolates, even ??cow chips & gator bits??

or maybe Askinosie Chocolates - a tour of the operations then some small batch goodies for the road. Desisions, decisions....

514 E Commercial Street
Springfield, MO
call for store & tour hours 417/ 862-9900

For the guys - my husbands favorite place to shop Grizzly Outlets.
This is as much fun for him as I have in a huge fabric store. There are tools and gadgets galore!

Then there's Bass Pro headquarters in Springfield. There is a huge Tracker Boats show room as well as the catalog store. And if they are lookin for a "man size" breakfast Saved Sinners favorate place is Hemingway's Blue Water cafe on the 4th floor.

"... they serve THE BEST breakfast in the Ozarks! They have a buffet for ABOUT $6 that has ham, bacon, sausage, eggs, catfish, biscuits & gravy, taters, oatmeal, they will make your omelette for you, french toast, waffles, fresh juice as well as fruit & yogurt bar. O yeah, and THE BEST apple dumplings you ever tasted in your life! It's a FAB breakfast, set in an atmosphere overlooking the wonders of Bass Pro below..."

The breakfast is a MUST for anyone visiting Springfield!
