Springfield is such a charming little town. It has a really cool, city square, with quaint little shops. There is Burdette's Tea room, The Copper Vault, Our Serenity Shop, which is a really cool little organic health food store and an old fashioned movie theatre. The historical courthouse has been used in several movies and can currently be seen on the new, hit TV show, "Still The King" which airs on CMT. There are plenty of stores, fast food places and shopping nearby; including a Super Walmart, which is open 24 hours. And for a great meal, check out The Depot, Torino's, or The Catfish House. There is also a nearby park with a greenway trail for exercising or just enjoying nature.
There is plenty of parking and easy access to both I-24 and I-65. There are cabs and taxis available, if needed. And I believe that Uber and Lyft are now available in this area, since it is so close to Nashville. If transportation is an issue, I can recommend a comfortable van service to take your group on tours of Nashville or surrounding areas with advance notice.
