Downtown Springfield Hotel near Route 66 and Missouri State University

Nat King Cole, Chuck Berry, and the Rolling Stones all sang about "getting your kicks on Route 66." The United State’s first transcontinental paved highway, Route 66 stretches from the Great Lakes to the Pacific coast and runs right through Springfield, Missouri, where the route was officially born in 1926. You can get a sense of Route 66’s glory days in Springfield—mom-and-pop diners and old service stations line the city's Kearney Street and Glenstone Avenue. These roadside haunts are situated near the upscale University Plaza Hotel & Convention Center – Springfield, MO, which is centrally located in the Jordan Valley Park neighborhood just across from the Springfield Expo Center and Missouri State University.

Executive Chef John Luchtel helms the onsite Terrace Grille, crafting simple dishes that use local and seasonal ingredients. In the morning, take advantage of a complimentary breakfast buffet. For dinner, you can order from an à la carte menu with dishes such as Angus beef sliders topped with poblano sauce and desserts such as chocolate crème brûlée with caramelized sugar. After dinner, unwind at the indoor pool and whirlpool before retiring to the peaceful guest rooms.

Springfield, Missouri: Small City with Resurging Downtown

Though it's Missouri’s third-largest city, Springfield still brims with small-town charm, offering a downtown area that has seen a resurgence of restaurants, bars, and nightlife. For an introduction to the area, find the Jefferson Avenue Footbridge, the world's longest pedestrian footbridge still in use. Take a walk or hitchhike on a dogsled to check out the footbridge, where you'll see stands with freshly harvested fruits, vegetables, and free-range fowl from small-scale farmers as well as handicrafts made by local artisans.

For a day trip that includes a show or two, take the roughly one-hour drive south to Branson—a miniature, more-family-friendly version of Las Vegas. Dozens of stages and music halls line Branson's main strip, some of which are owned by stars such as Andy Williams and Dolly Parton. On any given night, you can watch anything from country-music performances to circus acrobatics to magic shows.
