Springfield Area - Hotels and Dining

Where to Eat....Where to Stay.............many nice options!

Plan ahead!  We all want this to be a very special day for our graduates and their family and friends.   The Greater Springfield area has a wide range of dining options and a number of nice hotel venues.   Please visit the Valley Visitor to find listings of local restaurants and hotels.   If you are planning on a celebratory dinner the evening of Commencement, you might consider 7:30 p.m. and after a reasonable time for your reservation.  Call early since the 178th Ceremony will attract 5500+ graduates and guests!  Enjoy!
