The Simpsons Guide to Springfield
Springfield... Home of the Isotopes, Springfield A&M, and Blinkey, the world's first three-eyed fish! Birthplace of the Flaming Moe! the site of Krustylu Studios, the awe-inspiring Springfield Gorge, and a world-renowned box factory! O Springfield! What many wonders you offer up for our consumption! Yes, we've all heard of Springfield called the country's "worst city" and "America's crudbucket." But is it all that bad? Well, maybe yes and maybe no-you be the judge! this handy, indispensable guide shows you where to go, what to do, and what to see in Springfield-and what shots to get before you visit. Along the way, you'll explore the culture, foods, and beliefs of everyday people and, in essays, photos, and sidebars, peer into the very soul of this dysfunctional, dynamic city! From the smoky majesty of the Springfield tire Yard the crunchy, oily goddess of the Frying Dutchman seafood restaurant, from the swanky shopping of the South Street Squidport to nut-watching opportunities at the Bloodbath and Beyond Gun Shop, this is the guide for everyone planning a trip to the city that Springfield resident Marge Simpson calls, "a part of us all."
