- About Us
There’s no doubt 2020 was a challenge for the travel business, and although we aren’t out of the woods yet, we’re excited that people are ready to hit the road and discover new adventures here in Missouri. We have so much to offer all year round, with an extensive wine country, agritourism, charming small towns, two big rivers brimming with outdoor activities, breathtaking scenery and all the amenities of big city life.
With Missouri celebrating its bicentennial in 2021, we’d love to invite you to join us in exploring our history. From the Gateway to the West represented by the Gateway Arch National Park in St. Louis with its iconic 630-foot arch to the jumping off point for the Pony Express in St. Joseph – the Show-Me State is a place where history happened and has been celebrated and preserved for your enjoyment.
Ste. Genevieve is the state’s first settlement and is home to the Sainte Genevieve National Historical Park, which highlights French Colonial architecture and culture.
Before professional baseball was desegregated, black soon-to-be team owners gathered in Kansas City just over 100 years ago to create a league of their own. The game and its influence on American culture are celebrated at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
Hikers and bikers come from all over to experience the Katy Trail, the longest rail-to-trail conversion in the country. Visitors from all over the world rediscover the first true American road trip by driving Route 66. In the southern part of the state, the Ozarks offer everything from spectacular vistas and challenging hiking to fishing for wild trout and family-friendly entertainment in Branson.
We’re all this – and so much more.
Welcome to Missouri, and enjoy the show.
