What Makes Glass a Tourist Attraction

Whether you’re going somewhere new on vacation or exploring your hometown, you can find many attractions that incorporate glass. The next time you go sightseeing, pay attention to all the glass around you and how that contributes to your experience. Today, Springfield Glass Company explains what makes glass a tourist attraction locally, nationally, and globally.   

Provides Stunning Views

It’s amazing how glass can elevate the tourist experience. There are many glass-bottomed attractions found world-wide that are hundreds – even thousands – of feet above the ground. Three of the most spectacular viewpoints are the Grand Canyon Skywalk in Arizona, the Willis Tower Skydeck in Chicago, and the ‘Step into the Void’ Glass Cube at the top of the French Alps. Whether you’re afraid of heights or you’re a natural thrill seeker, the transparent custom glass offers unparalleled views of cities, peaks, and landscapes. If you make it to any of these see-through sensations (without fainting from dizziness), you’ll have some great stories to tell your kids and grandkids one day.

Connects You to the Great Outdoors

You don’t have to travel the world to experience the beauty of nature. You can find a number of memorable attractions right here in Springfield, MO, from state parks to zoos and museums. No excursion is more prominent than Bass Pro Shops’ Wonders of Wildlife Museum and Aquarium, which showcases over 35,000 animals and over 800 species. Whether you’re a Springfield native or a tourist, you can explore wildlife galleries, special exhibits, and the immersive aquarium. But the impressive panoramas couldn’t exist without glass. 

If you’ve been to Wonders of Wildlife, you were probably not focused on the glass all around you. But the glass helps connect humans to nature through close-up views of fish and ecosystems. The glass also enables everyone to celebrate wildlife conservation.

Gives Tourists a Different Perspective

The Springfield Art Museum is another popular tourist attraction in southwest Missouri. From sculptures and vases to chandeliers and beads, there are many glass objects on display for tourists and families. You can find many of these items in custom glass display cases, which you examine can from the front, back, and sides. These multiple angles give you different perspectives of what’s on display.
