Springfield is for enjoying out-of-the-ordinary experiences while still feeling right at home. Missouri’s third-largest city is a family-friendly hotspot with an atmosphere that radiates classic Americana heritage — Route 66 passes through Springfield after all.
Visit historic theaters like Landers Theatre and Gillioz Theatre, make a reservation to chow down on some midwestern cooking, then head out into the lakes and forests of the Ozark Mountains for some outdoor adventures.
Springfield, Missouri is ripe with easy family activities that’ll keep your little ones entertained all vacation long.
This vast underground cave is just 20 minutes from downtown Springfield, and is one of the town’s best activities for families. Enjoy an hour-long guided ride in a Jeep-drawn tram — this is North America’s only cave system large enough to ride through this way.
Over 500 animals call Springfield’s zoo home. Explore the “Tropical Asia” area for exotic species from afar, then stroll through “Missouri Habitats” to discover details on the local fauna like wolves, black bears, and river otters.
Another day trip location for the family, this science and learning museum of sorts encourages visitors to challenge themselves and with hands-on exhibits that cover everything from technology to art to history. Ride the HighWire bike and maybe take home a sample of your own DNA!

Everything is spotless and brand new in this vehicle! I had no issues whatsoever with the car or the rental process. Kerrigan was amazing and was very responsive & helpful throughout the whole trip!
Great rental and host was very respectful and helpful with us since we were first time be Turo user's.
Brian's Terrain was great for our golf/family visit trip to SW MO. He had the vehicle waiting on us at the airport and was there on time to retrieve it before we flew out. Very polite and responsive, will definitely book with him again!
Awesome car! Just was a great time, host was amazing and easy to communicate with. Highly recommend the rental!
Wonderful communication with Kerrigan made our first Turo rental a breeze! This was a great vehicle for our family’s Spring Break vacation in Branson.
3rd rental from Dillyon!!! He is wonderfully attentive and polite!!! And his vehicles are so nice! My go to car rental while in Springfield!
Dillyon’s Land Rover Evoque was the perfect SUV for my trip to Springfield to visit my son and grandson. The vehicle is in excellent condition mechanically and cosmetically. It snowed the day we arrived so the factory all season mats were definitely a plus. The owners were very accommodating and made the pick-up and drop-off effortless. I will definitely be a repeat customer. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great car! Great hosts! The car is kept in like-new condition and has a lot of very useful features. Driving feels like you’re in a brand new car. Handles great and is very comfortable on long road trips with more than enough space for 5 adults. Anytime I needed anything or just had a question Lisa responded quickly. Highly recommend!
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Branson and with the help of Kerrigan and her jeep we were able to explore as much as we wanted! I highly recommend using her as your host, she made the process so easy!
Kerrigan is an amazing host and the Traulblazer is spotless, smells fresh and all around perfect for my trip!
Orval was communicative. Not flexible in regards to curbside request or time change request. Didn’t give any info ahead of time as to car location, so communication between flights traveling to get the car, was a bit challenging but overall car itself was great. Ran well and in good condition. Car very clean and good size and space. Would rent again.
Great host, they made our trip so easy! Vehicle was fantastic, clean, plenty of room for 4 and luggage. Airport pickup and drop off were quick and smooth. I don’t know how it could have been better!
The best service I’ve had with Turo. Great drop off and pickup. Highly recommend.
Great rental! Super simple pick up process from parking lot in front of the airport. The Jeep was exceptionally clean and spacious despite not being a full size SUV like a suburban. It was perfect for getting around the ozarks since it fits easy in tight parking spots and has a small turning radius. I would have had trouble parking in most places with a pickup or suburban etc. I would definitely rent again from Kerrigan. She does a great job.
Car was very clean. Elite D was flexible and communication was back and forth was awesome.
Susan very accommodating host, if I had any questions or issues( which I really did not have any issue) she was answering quickly and had good local information. It was a very pleasant transaction.
This RR is my favorite when visiting family in Springfield. Dillyon and his wife are a pleasure to work with.
This was my first Turo experience and Sid was a terrific host. His jeep was spotless and perfect for my short last minute business trip. No rental car bus, no lines, so fast and easy, and everything was exactly as described. I love this!
The experience was magnitudes simpler and faster than renting from the airport car rental agencies. Truly and push start and go experience. Simply walked out of the airport, easily located the vehicle using the aerial photo and parking location description, then I was on my way. Invaluable for a business trip. I was singing the praises of the experience to folks the whole trip. Thank you!
All was great with the car. It drove well and was nice to have a car seat too. Good communication except for a slight issue with pick up spot address being incorrect.
Great car!! So nice for our trip. And amazing hosts—went the extra mile to be sure everything was ready for our first trip to Springfield. Our flight was later than we expected and we even had another setback which caused us to return the car 2 hours later than originally planned but they were very understanding.
Easy pick up and drop off! Very nice car. Great communication. Very easy. Would def recommend!
Brooke is world class! We had a tremendous experience working with Brooke as the entire process was seamless. Her QX80 is luxurious. Thanks, Brooke! We'll see you next time out.
This transaction went very smoothly. Communication was exceptional. The car was extremely clean and beautiful. Who doesn’t want to ride a Benz. I was thrilled with the whole experience. I will use this provider again when I’m in Missouri.
Beautiful car. Easy check in and out. Amazing host. Family lives here. Will be renting from Kerrigan again without a doubt. Very easy to work with, very responsive, and very professional. We highly recommend this host.
Amazing ride and owners. Communication was awesome as well. Def looking foward to future rentals from them. A+++++
First time Turo user and I love it. Our host was very responsive and the car was beautiful. Definitely my go to for car rentals in the future!
Excellent experience renting Joey’s Renegade. He was very accommodating with curbside airport pick up and drop off. The car was new and clean. Checkout his Facebook page Rent-A-Car 417
First time using Turo and it was a great experience! Dillyon was very responsive to messages and the car was very clean! Looking forward to our next trip!

Jeep is such a smooth ride & fun to drive. It was delivered to us very clean & in a timely manner. The host is awesome & I would definitely rent this jeep again.
Communication was great. Changes to our trip itinerary were approved. Vehicle was in great condition, ran well, and met all our needs.
Had so much fun in the jeep and it was the perfect size for our family of 5 plus luggage.
Elite D provided an excellent car (Subaru Outback). The car was clean and well maintained. He met us at the airport when our flight arrived. During our trip we had a family emergency and needed to extend our rental. Elite was quick to respond to our request and very accomodating. I will definitely rent from Elite again!
This is my third trip with Dillyon. His vehicles are very luxurious. He is always responsive and his vehicles are well taken care of! I book with him every time.
Brian was very communicative. He responded to all my questions immediately. Car is in great shape. He also allowed me to change my departure as my trip plans changed. Highly recommend!
Kerrigan was awesome host. My first time and she walked me through the whole trip.
The best! The vehicle was better than described and the communication with Kerrigan was top notch! I wish all Turo rentals were this smooth. I highly recommend Kerrigan!
I was able to have a great birthday trip thanks to their amazing service and great ride. I highly recommend it!
Kerrigan was great to work with and the vehicle was in excellent condition/ a pleasure to drive. I would rent this vehicle from this person again if we come back to this area! Thank you!
If you're ever in Missouri and you see Elite rent from this company. Great communication! Very friendly and helpful! The car was super clean and did the job! Will definitely rent from you when we are back in the state! It was a pleasure!
Kerrigan was amazing to work with, I highly recommend renting from her! Easy and clear instructions for pick up up and drop!
A favorite among locals, Highway 125 from Sparta to the fishing hot spot Bull Shoals Lake on the border of Arkansas offers beautiful twists and turns of rural highway through forested hills.
This scenic 300-mile stretch of Old Route 66 from St. Louis to Joplin will give you a taste of the America that used to be. Stop off at antique shops, have lunch at old-school diners, and be sure to visit Cuba's Totem Pole Trading Post and The Elbow Inn in Devils Elbow.
Head an hour east to Cabool, then hop on Highway 181 and drive south through the gorgeous woods of Mark Twain National Forest in Ozark Hill Country. Use the “Green vehicles” filter to find a car with good gas mileage and save on fuel.
