Kiplinger: Springfield 8th Most Affordable City in the Nation

Those that book conventions and tours from across the nation are taking a look at the latest rankings of the most livable cities.

Landing, once again in the top ten of the US’s most affordable cities, Springfield tourism officials are hoping to parlay an influential report into increased convention bookings.

“These tourists are looking for affordable communities,” says Puglia. “Packaging Lincoln and Route 66 and affordability and charm, Springfield, Illinois is a beautiful gem itself.”

Springfield Convention and Visitor Bureau Executive Director Fred Puglia says the Springfield Chamber of Commerce and area realtors will also use the Kiplinger Newsletter’s ranking of the Capital City at number 8 as a draw for those looking to relocate their families or businesses.
