“One of the things our family likes about living in Springfield is that there’s always a lot of things to see and do. It’s a very family friendly environment. We enjoy the Branson shows and all the outdoor opportunities for hiking and biking, and our son really loves the libraries. There’s also a great diversity of restaurants, including Indian food, which we appreciate since that is our heritage. It’s easy to stay active in the community too. We always have something to do.”
