This little tucked away hole in the wall has some amazing asian fusion cuisine. It is on the west side of town but worth the trip. From there you can walk over to Pease's at Bunn Gourmet and get some good dessert and coffee.

This is place is hands down the best coffee shop in Springfield, IL. First off the coffee is outstanding plus the decor is well tied together. They often have live music on the terrace (check schedule), their staff is very friendly, and their desserts are amazing. Two local businesses, Bunn and Pease's, teamed up to create a must visit experience in Springfield, IL.

This is my favorite bar in Springfield. It is beautiful inside with high antique ceilings, brick walls, and beautiful woodwork. This bar is more crowded on the weekend afternoons or when there is a farmers market downtown than at nights. I love going in for bloody marys on the weekend afternoons.

This is my favorite dive bar and one of the best place to go for local live music. They have a nice patio summer and winter and usually have live music several times a week. It is usually busy during happy hour after work, weekend nights, and sunday afternoons. They have amazing free chili on Sundays during football season.

Entertainment & Activities

This water park is a great summer destination. It has paddle boats, bumper boats, go carts, mini-golf, and a wide variety of water rides. If you are too grown up for those things there is always the lazy river and the driving range.
