More Missouri Travel Information

Show me a state where you can walk in the steps of Lewis & Clark (Katy Trail), tour a brewery (Anheuser Bush in St. Louis), see Elvis perform years after his death (Branson), visit Becky Thatcher's house and Tom Sawyer's cave (Hannibal), and see where Winston Churchill gave his chilling Iron Curtain speech in 1946 (Westminster College in Fulton). Show me a state where there are parks to honor Harry S. Truman, Ulysses S Grant, Mark Twain, Scott Joplin, Lewis & Clark, Nathan Boone (Daniel's son), three Civil War battles, the Trail of Tears and Route 66. Show me a state where your kids can enjoy Adventure Oasis Water Park (Independence), the Magic House (St. Louis), Worlds of Fun (Kansas City), a world-class zoo (St. Louis), or rafting, fishing, horseback riding, bird watching, off-roading, caving or canoeing — all with stunning views of the Ozark Mountains. Show me a state with a rich agricultural history that now permits you the chance to experience the historic rural countryside through agritourism, while staying at a Christmas tree farm, pumpkin farm, orchid farm, winery, u-pick farm, or flower gardens. Show me a state where you can still catch a show with Elvis, Dolly, Dick Clark, Red Skelton, Hank Williams, Mel Tillis, The Oakridge Boys, the hits of the '50s, '60s, '70s or VeggieTales. Show me a state with this kind of entertainment, culture, history, recreation, sports, shopping, natural beauty, great food, wine and Midwest hospitality, and I'll show you Missouri.
