Last spring, we decided to venture south to Springfield, Missouri. My cousin had insisted we needed to visit the Bass Pro Shop in this city. I really am not a very big shopper but had agreed just to satisfy him. We were so taken aback about our experience that I now encourage people to visit there. This store is much more than a store. While you are venturing around, it is hard telling what you will see. A live alligator, huge aquarium, goats, bear, deer, cougar, and much more are part of this experience. Anything and everything about the outdoors and how to enjoy it are offered in this store. More fishing poles and jures than you can count. Guns, sporting goods, camping supplies of every nature are offered in here.
Naturally after several hours of walking around, you wil be hungry. There is one of the best southern buffets we have ever had the pleasure of having experienced. The food was wonderful. We both walked out full to the gills. To top it off, the price was cheaper than other places we could have eaten.
This store is definatly a must, even if you are like me and not much of a shopper. If you enjoy the outdoor way of life, this is like bringing the outdoors, indoors.
P.S. Visit the bathrooms. You'll be surprised.
