Another 'Are We There Yet?' Book.
Springfield . . . Home of the Isotopes, Springfield A&M, and Blinky, the world's first three-eyed fish! Birthplace of the Flaming Moe! The site of Krustylu Studios, the awe-inspiring Springfield Gorge, and a world-renowned box factory! O Springfield! What many wonders you offer up for our consumption!
Yes, we've all heard Springfield called the country's "worst city" and 'America's crudbucket". But is it all that bad? Well, maybe yes and maybe no - you be the judge! This handy, indispensable guide shows you where to go, what to do, and what to see in Springfield - and what hosts to get before you visit. Along the way, you'll explore the culture, foods, and beliefs of everyday people and, in essays, photos, and side-bars, peer into the very soul of this dysfunctional, dynamic city!
From the smoky majesty of the Springfield Tire Yard to the crunchy, oily goodness of The Frying Dutchman seafood restaurant, from he swanky shopping of the South Street Squidport to nut-watching opportunities at the Bloodbath and Beyond Gun Shop, this is the guide for anyone planning a trip to the city that Springfield resident Marge Simpson calls, "a part of us all".
