Not only is Springfield home to MGM Springfield Casino, there's also a lot of things to do during the day! We have Six Flags New England, which is great for the kids, especially in the summer! We also have the Basketball Hall of Fame, The Eastern States Exposition aka The Big E, which is the largest agricultural event on the east and 6th largest fair in the nation. People flock from all over the world to visit and create memories. It runs for 17 days from mid-September to the beginning of October usually. For more educational purposes, visit the Springfield Museums and the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden, the Springfield Armory National Historic Site and if you're visiting during the holiday season, Bright Nights at Forest Park!
