Recognized throughout the Midwest as the birthplace of Route 66 and Cashew Chicken, the city of Springfield has won countless national awards as a great place to raise families and a fast track for those seeking to rise in the business world. The state’s third largest metro area is so more than just a home to the famous Bass Pro – Springfield is the “Queen City of the Ozarks”for recreation, education, entertainment and transportation. Springfield has several colleges and universities within the city. Founded in 1905 as the Fourth District Normal School, Missouri State University is the state's second largest university with just over 20,000 students. For the seventh consecutive year, MSU has been selected for The Princeton Review’s 2010 list of “Best Colleges: Region by Region”.

Like Kansas City and St. Louis, Springfield has seen a resurgence in its downtown area. Many of the older buildings have been renovated into mixed-use buildings such as lofts, office space, restaurants, coffee shops, bars, boutiques, and music venues. Located within downtown are historic theaters that have been restored to their original state, including the Gillioz Theatre and the Landers Theatre. Springfield has also seen increased interest in the local and organic food movement and is home to several farmer's markets, a community garden, several natural food stores, a fair trade chocolate factory, a winery, and three craft breweries. Springfield is a regional medical center with six hospitals and more than 2,200 beds. The city's health care system offers every specialty listed by the American Medical Association. Two of the top 100 hospitals in the U.S. (Cox Health and Mercy Health System) are located in Springfield, and both are in the midst of expansion projects. The industry employs 30,000 people throughout the Springfield metro area. The United States Medical Center for Federal Prisoners, one of six
federal institutions designed to handle the medical concerns of federal inmates, is located at the corner of W. Sunshine Street and Kansas Expressway.
