Missouri is rich in history and culture.
American Indian warriors, such as the Osage and Missouri,
and famous pioneers, such as Lewis and Clark, were drawn to the vast
waterways of the Mississippi and
Rivers and the abundant land and wildlife.
In the first half of the 1800’s, Missouri's
history was rich with the Santa Fe, Oregon and
Trails threading through Kansas City and
Independence. In the second
half of the nineteenth century,
saw many struggles as it moved from a pro-slavery state
to a Union State, experiencing armed conflict and guerrilla-raids.
Missourioffers stunning scenery in its rolling hills, winding
rivers, and limestone bluffs.
Explore Missouri's many underground caves, enjoy white water rapids, fish in
its numerous streams and lakes, and visit its many small towns that
abound with charm and friendly people.
This is a just a little of what the state has to offer.
Enjoy your travels in
welcome to the Legends of the Show Me State.
