I will be traveling to Springfield in a few weeks for an interview, and in addition to some "touristy" activities, I'd like advice on what areas of the city I should look at as a potential future resident. Could someone let me know where I should go as a parent with a toddler? I'd like to visit places that locals frequent: parks, ymca, and other kid activity places. I'd also like to check out the local shopping. Where do people tend to head for retail excursions? I'd like to get a feel for what life is like in Springfield. Any advice on what to do would be greatly appreciated.
