Bradley Airport Guide

Springfield is undergoing a renaissance with infrastructure being upgraded to make access to the city easier. When you get there you should first try to see the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Even if you’re not a fan of the sport, you can learn about it and see the stories of the great teams and players. The Quadrangle has five museums within easy walking distance, all of which are considered world class. The Dr Seuss Sculpture Garden is fabulous, as is the Museum of Science. Motorbike fans will want to see the museum now on the site of where the famous Indian Motorbikes were manufactured.

Springfield Info

Springfield was the first city of that name in the US and was founded in 1640 by William Pynchon. It was located there because of the very fertile soils that meant the crops of the early settlers were the finest in New England. It’s strategic location led it to be chosen by George Washington as the site for the US Armoury and it soon began manufacture of the famous Springfield rifle, used up to the end of the Vietnam War. The city has retained its lead in precision manufacturing with a number of specialist industries there today.
