Welcome to Springfield Area

The city of Springfield, located in Massachusetts’ fertile Pioneer Valley, is number one - literally! Often referred to as the “City of Firsts,” the greater Springfield area gave birth to the sports of basketball and volleyball, and Theodor Geisel, better known as popular children’s author Dr. Suess. Relive some of the greatest moments in sports’ history while learning about great past players at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and Volleyball Hall of Fame, located on the outskirts of the city in Holyoke. To relive probably the greatest moments of your childhood, visit the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden. Bring your camera and snap a picture with favorites like the Cat in the Hat and the Grinch! Don’t make your first trip to Springfield your last!
