I am planning on starting in the spring to start taking a day trip to different locations in the State. Most will just be a Saturday, but if I find some place very interesting I will make it an overnight adventure. I have had season passes to Silver Dollar City for the past several years so most spare days were spent there. I decided that I have been all over the country, but other than for Friday Night Lights (high school football), I have missed a lot of things to see in my own home state.

I enjoy visiting St. Louis during the 4th of July weekend, with the Arch and Riverfront festivities. emoticon

I concur with the Hannibal reference here. I lived in Hannibal for a period 1.5 yrs some years back...and loved it. There was a little coffee shop downtown, I don't remember the name (imagine that) but they offered specialty coffee lounge-y with sofas and coffee tables, comfy chairs and board games. Such a neat place to decompress. There's so many other sights to see. Great place to live or just visit.
The Carthage food truck scene sounds delightful. Might have to consider checking that out some time.
Grew up going to Branson and Dogpatch when I was a kid.

It's been years since I've been to the capital and do not remember artwork at all. Will have to consider a trip that way too.
If you ever get a chance to get in to the courthouse in Monroe County seat in Paris, MO, there is some amazing murals painted on the walls there. It is a beautiful little courthouse.

Ever toured the Capital? Paintings in our Capital Building are well known.

Love Carthage Food Truck Friday on the second Friday of the month. It is an event that brings a cross section of people together. Since there are trucks from other localities, there are a variety of foods available. There are some activities for children. Being able to bring along your fur baby on leash is an added bonus.

Earlier this month, we spent a week in Branson. We enjoyed several shows but especially were impressed with the production of Samson. If you have children in your group, the Ducks are a great way to sightsee.

Hannibal Missouri is a great place to visit if you like the author Mark Twain. We have a lots of small shops, 2 museums and several great restaurants downtown. We also have 244 steps up to a lighthouse with a beautiful look over the Mighty Mississippi. We also have 2 caves just south of town that are great to tour.

We have toured this site a number of times. I love that we have this treasure like a pearl hidden in the Ozarks.

Forum to promote our own localities or other places we enjoy in the state. It may be parks, museums, restaurants, upcoming events, etc.

I always say Missouri is one step from heaven. Looking forward to hearing from members.
