You never know what fun you'll have or what mischief you'll get into while staying in one of our Springfield, Oregon vacation rentals! The city is said to represent classic America and is the real-life inspiration behind Portland native Matt Groening's cartoon, The Simpsons!
Live like Homer and indulge in foodie passions with a burger and fries at Fins Drive-In. Expand your mind like Lisa while viewing exhibits at the Springfield Museum or Emerald Art Center (be sure to check out the official Simpsons mural!). Spend some quality family time like Marge with a walking tour through the Washburne Historic District, or cause a ruckus like Bart at the Willamalane Skatepark. There's something for everyone in this charming and iconic little town!
Springfield is a popular destination for Oregon vacation rentals. Unlike its neighbor to the west, Eugene, Springfield has less of an emphasis on college living and more on family-friendly activities and abundant outdoor recreation. With two rivers flowing through town, the Cascade Mountains just to the east, and plenty of forested landscape to explore, this region is ripe for adventure!
Check out Dorris Ranch Living History Farm with the kids, or take a nature walk around the Mount Pisgah Arboretum. Fish for summer steelhead in the McKenzie River or ride on horseback through old oaks at Triangle 5 Ranch. Enjoy a rafting trip along the Willamette with Oregon Whitewater Adventures or plan the perfect picnic and hike at Jasper State Recreation Site.
You could even take a quick drive out to Fall Creek Lake for a dip, or enjoy a scenic drive along the McKenzie River. Outdoor beauty and rugged adventure are always around the corner while staying in Springfield vacation rentals!
From water parks to theaters to wine bars, Springfield is bustling with activity! Take the kiddos to Splash! at Lively Park for trips to the wave pool, lap pool, waterslides, spa and more!
Go wine tasting with Cork & Barrel Wine Tours, then watch an indie film or musical production at the Richard E. Wildish Community Theater. Pick up fresh produce at the Sprout farmer's market every Friday or join the Second Friday Art Walk every month. Whatever your pleasure, Springfield vacation rentals are surrounded by vibrant arts and culture!
Make the most of your vacation time with a mini road trip! Springfield vacation rentals are a short drive to unique landscapes and urban charm. Visit loved ones at the University of Oregon in Eugene or partake in the Oregon Bach Festival and other eclectic arts scenes just across the river. (The Simpsons' rival town of Shelbyville was inspired by Eugene!) Head to the coast just 70 miles away for day trips in the picturesque community of Florence to check out the charming souvenir shops, beaches, golf links, and the famous Sea Lion Caves and Heceta Head Lighthouse just north of town!
