Although many travel journalists aren't visiting destinations at the same pace as they were before the pandemic, they're still telling the stories of destinations so others know where to go in their spare time.

Here's proof! Below are links to a sample of some of the stories about Springfield that have appeared in a variety of media outlets this year due to CVB media relations.

Enjoy reading and don't forget to keep telling us your stories! Be sure to include CVB public relations manager Susan Wade ( on your news release distribution lists. We use the information you provide on our calendar, in blog posts, in story pitches and to stay tuned in to what's happening in the local tourism industry.
