Missouri is located just below Iowa. It is home to the famous Kansas City. Illinois is on its northeast. Oklahoma is in the Southwest, whereas Arkansas is in the south. Sightseers can visit the historical monuments at Ste. Genevieve and the Mastodon State Historic site. Backpackers can head to Current and Jacks Fork rivers. Missouri has many exciting activities you can do.
On the north are Weston, Hannibal, Arrow Rock, Kirksville, St Joseph and Maryville. In the area of Ozarks (the south), there are Springfield, Poplar Bluff, Branson and Cape Girardeau. In the center are Columbia and Jefferson City (capital city). The western region is the metropolitan section; it is home to Kansas City and Lee’s Summit. The Eastern part is also an urban area, which is called the St. Louis area.
Jefferson City might be the capital, but the largest city is Kansas City. Melodious blues rule every corner, and aroma of barbecue will tingle your nose. The Country Club Plaza (a shopping center), the Liberty Memorial, the Union Station, The Crossroads and The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art are hotspots in Kansas City. Branson is the mecca of tourists in Missouri. It has a lively music scene. Getting around for tourists is easy, as there are many tourist buses.
You can travel to the Ozarks and visit the Lake of Ozarks. It is a busy tourist hub. St. Genevieve is located on the fringes of the Mississippi River. It has the oldest brick house built west of the Mississipi, which has been turned into a restaurant. In the list of historical sites, Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield is also a remarkable spot.
In the Ozark national scenic riverways, an adventurer can have the experience of a lifetime. You can camp in a lush national park. You can also canoe through the rivers, hike to the caves and do caving. The Mark Twain National Forest offers so much more. You can then do some fine dining in the middle of nowhere and there are also sunny beaches where you can get a tan.
