WWW.VISITMO.COM 11
Missouri has long enjoyed high-caliber entertainment options, with
landmarks featuring different venues that welcome a wide range of
performances. Missouri truly has it all: Family entertainment, live shows,
plays, symphonies, all genres of music, grand and light operas, dance and
ballet troupes, magicians, circus acts, civic events and traveling exhibits.
Entertainment!
LIVE PERFORMANCES IN MISSOURI
Theaters and concert venues in Missouri
provide the glitz, glamour and spectacle that
please audiences from around the world; best
of all, theyre right here in Americas heartland.
Missouri is proud to be the home of one
of the worlds most renowned entertainment
venues, Kansas Citys Kauffman Center for
the Performing Arts, which celebrated its
grand opening in the fall of 2011. This mega-
modern, awe-inspiring state-of-the-art facil-
ity features The Muriel Kauffman Theatre,
which seats 1,800 in ultraplush seats; and the
oval-shaped Helzberg Hall, where the stage
extends into the auditorium, thus placing 40
percent of the 1,600 seats alongside the stage.
These theaters host Broadway production
companies, renowned orchestras and bands,
top national and international entertainers,
artists and performance troupes. As if that
isnt enough, the Kauffman Center serves as
the home performance venue for the Kansas
City Ballet, the Lyric Opera of Kansas City,
and the Kansas City Symphony Orchestra.
As a new center for the arts and enter-
tainment, its indeed ironic the Kauffman
Center is located on Broadway. Broadway
Avenue, that is, in the heart of Kansas Citys
Crossroads Arts District, just south of
the Power & Light District and the Sprint
Center. Kauffman Center visitors find nu-
merous entertainment and dining options just
outside the Centers doors.
When it comes to entertainment options,
the Southwest Missouri city of Branson might
be unr i va l e d.
Known as t he
Live Music Show
Capital of the
World, Branson
is where you al-
ways find some-
one you love on
stage and where
world-renowned
entertainers per-
f or m i n mor e
than 50 theaters
morni ng, noon
and night. In ad-
dition to vocalists
and bands, you
find comedians,
instrumentalists, impersonators, acrobats, ven-
triloquists, plays, pageants, magicians, circus
acts and trained animals the full lineup is
much too vast to list.

the Little Grand Canyon
Grand Gulf State Park, also known as the Little Grand Canyon, or referred to by many as
just breathtaking, is located near Thayer. Created from a collapsed cave system, the Grand
Gulf stretches for more than a mile between 130-foot-high walls. View the gulf from trails
along the rim or from the floor, where visitors can walk under a natural bridge that spans 250
feet with a 75-foot-high opening. Missouris State Parks and Historic Sites offer many more
natural wonders, walking and biking trails, camping, history lessons and more.

Originally built in Springfield
by the Knights of Pythias as an
orphanage and senior citizens
home for its members and their
families in 1913, the Pythian
Castle was acquired by the U.S.
military in 1942. It
was used as offices,
a recovery facility
for WWI veter-
ans and a hospital
until 1993, when
it was sold as sur-
plus property. The Castle is now
open for tours, is available for
private rental for special events
and offers events throughout the
year, including murder myster-
ies, comedy nights and dinner
theater.
In addition to this castle,
there are many castle-like homes

You can go whitewater
rafting in Missouri
Each spring in Southeast Missouri, whitewater rafting enthusiasts con-
verge on Fredericktown for the Missouri Whitewater Championships
on the St. Francis River at Millstream Gardens Conservation Area. If
you prefer smoother sailing, try canoeing, kayaking or rafting down one
of Missouris more tame waterways; in Missouri, we call them float trips.
Southeast Missouri is a prime location for float trips, with many rivers and
creeks to choose from including the Current and Jacks Fork rivers, which
make up the Ozark National Scenic Riverways; the Eleven Point River;
Huzzah Creek; Little Niangua River; and Meramec River, to name a few.

Statues
of Liberty
The Boy Scouts of America
celebrated their 40th anniver-
sary in 1950 with the theme of
Strengthen the Arm of Liberty.
Between 1949 and 1952, ap-
proximately 200 replicas of
the Statue of Liberty, made
of stamped copper, were pur-
chased by Boy Scout troops
and donated in 39 states. The
project was the brainchild of
Kansas City businessman J.
P. Whitaker, who was then
Scout Commissioner of the
Kansas City Area Council.
Approximately 18 of these
replicas are on display across
Missouri.

Were home to 100 wineries
Missouris long history of producing fine wines dates to the 1830s, when German im-
migrants established the town of Hermann on the banks of the Missouri River. By
1890, Missouri was the largest wine-producing state in America, turning out more than 2 million
gallons annually; there were more than 100 wineries in the Hermann area alone. By 1900, Stone
Hill Winery, in Hermann, was the third-largest winery in the world. Prohibition wiped out the
wine industry in Missouri by 1920. In recent years, Missouri has seen a comeback in the wine in-
dustry and now has 100 wineries around the state. Explore the wineries in any order you want, or

military. Strange noises and unexplained orbs of
light are common at the castle, which is listed on
the National Register of Historic Places.
In Southeast Missouri, the Mississippi River city of Cape
Girardeau is known to have its fair share of ghosts. Among the
haunted locations in Cape are the Old Lorimier Cemetery,
where a flickering lantern has been seen and people have ex-
perienced a tap on the shoulder when no one else was there;
and the Cape River Heritage Museum, where unexplained
footsteps are heard and where doors sometimes open and close
by themselves.
Hunting for hauntings
If you do any of your own research for haunted
sites, please remember many of the places youre
likely to find are private property and not open to
the public. If youre looking for visitor-friendly sites
or tours, explore www.VisitMO.com; you might
try using the keywords ghost or haunt.
o The use of infrared camera equipment is just one
highlight of the Lemp Mansion paranormal tours.

Less than five miles from The Elms, enjoy
a weekend afternoon or evening at Fence
Stile Vineyards & Winery. Try the wines
and enjoy a glass or bottle in the indoor
tasting room, on the patio overlooking the
vineyards or by the outdoor fire pit. Take a
picnic, and staff will help pair a wine to it.
Live music is offered many weekends. Space
is available for private parties and events.
Some of the best shopping in the Midwest
is found at Kansas Citys famed Country Club
Plaza. The entire 15-block district, with more
than 150 shops and dozens of fine restaurants,
makes The Plaza a prime shopping, dining
and entertainment destination.
In Weston, relax at the Inn at
Weston Landing Bed and Breakfast.
Having four guestrooms, four girl-
friends can take over the entire house,
which was originally part of the circa
1842 Weston Royal Brewing Company.
Enjoy the outdoor hot tub; take in the
music next door, at OMalleys Irish
Pub; and dine a couple of blocks away
at The Vineyards Restaurant, a small
restaurant with white linen service, set
in an 1845 antebellum home. After a
soothing nights sleep, awake to an ex-
pertly prepared hot breakfast.
Pirtle Winery, one block from

ONE FOR THE BOYS
Guys like to get outside and com-
mune with nature thats hus-
band-speak for golf, pubs, golf,
wineries andgolf. So put together
your foursome and head to north-
west Missouri.
In the January 2010 issue of Golf
Magazine, Stone Canyon Golf Club,
in Blue Springs, was listed as one of
the Best New Courses You Can Play.
The only Greg Norman Signature
Design course in Missouri, the layout
at Stone Canyon provides a memo-
rable golf challenge with closely mown green surrounds,
creative bunkering and dramatic landscape accents like rock
outcroppings, rolling topography and dramatic views.
Also in Blue Springs, Adams Pointe Golf Club is set in
rolling hills. It has a challenging front nine carved out of
forest and wetlands, and a scenic back nine that offers links-
style golf with dramatic changes in elevation. Golf carts are
GPS equipped. Adams Pointe is recognized for its environ-
mental excellence, and is a designated Certified Audubon
Cooperative Sanctuary. There is a Courtyard by Marriott
adjacent to the course, offering stay and play packages.
Evening entertainment in Blue Springs is always hoppin
at Trouser Mouse Bar and Grill. This is a swinging blues
and jazz club, featuring national and local artists Wednesday
through Saturday evenings, karaoke Sunday
and Monday, pool tables, darts and a huge
projection screen. They are famous for their
French dip sandwiches.
Belvoir Winery in Liberty occupies a
magnificent 40,000-square-foot building that
is a former Odd Fellows Home, circa 1910.
Belvoir produces grape and fruit wines. The
tasting room, which includes a full service
bar, is filled with old world charm. The win-
ery sits on 170 acres, with breathtaking vistas.

large mounds lining the fairways, tall native grasses in the
unconditioned areas, more than 30 sand bunkers, and large
greens, this course is challenging for all skill levels.
Your golf foursome can settle down for the night at
Cedar Loft Bed and Breakfast, located at Soggy Bottom
Camp in Cameron. The red-cedar lined cabin includes a
dry sauna, a wood stove with grilling capabilities, an out-
door fire pit and a gas grill; cooking utensils are supplied.
Continental breakfast provided.
If your clubs just arent quite right, the pro shop at
Fairview Golf Course in St. Joseph is a certified club-
fitting facility. Fairview, established in 1925, is one of the
oldest 18-hole public golf courses in Missouri. The course
challenges you with tree-lined fairways, plenty of water
hazards and large, undulating greens.
After a hard day of golf, unwind with a meal and some gam-
ing at Terribles St. Jo Frontier Casino, in St. Joseph. This ca-
sino features lively action, table gaming, video games and slots.
The Bougainvillea Cafe and Lounge offers an all-you-can-eat
buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Parking is free.
FUN FOR THE FAMILY
Spending time as a family is one of our most important activi-
ties. It gives us a chance to experience life from each others
point of view. Everyone knows about Worlds of Fun, the
Kansas City Zoo, and the Truman Presidential Library; so
here are some ideas you may not know about or have yet to
visit. Ohdont let the kids turn up their noses at the word
museum; it doesnt necessarily mean boring stuff.
Walt Disneys inspiration for Disneyland and Main Street
USA was the small Missouri town of Marceline, where he
lived as a child. The Walt Disney Hometown Museum,
located in the restored 1913 Santa Fe Depot, houses a unique
collection of Disneys fam-
ily effects, never displayed
anywhere else in the world.
Visitors see more than 3,000
artifacts from the Disney fam-
ily and Walts childhood, in-
cluding personal belongings,
letters, photos, drawings, re-
cordings and movie footage,
and an actual Midget Autopia
car, the only ride that ever left
Disneyland. From a window in
the baggage room, watch some
of the more than 70 trains that
pass the museum daily.
After youve seen the mu-
seum, visit Disneys Dreaming
Tree and Barn, located at the
old family farm (get direc-
tions at the museum). Under
this tree is the spot where
Walt first began to draw; the
barn is where he put on his
first show business produc-
Famous figures
of Northwest
Missouri
Northwest Missouri is a region noted
for many things, including its con-
nection to people important in state,
national and world history.
Harry S. Truman, the onl y
Missourian ever elected president,
made his home in Independence; ani-
mator and film pioneer Walt Disney
spent his youth on a farm in Marceline;
retail magnate J.C. Penney lived in
the city of Hamilton; Gen. John J.
Black Jack Pershing spent much of
his childhood in Laclede; and outlaw
Jesse James lived in both Kearney
and St. Joseph.
Today, several attractions in the
region from museums, libraries and
homes to family farms, parks and his-
toric sites are devoted to the lives of
these and other famous Missourians.

Family
reunions in
Northwest
Missouri
Has it been a long time since every-
body got together? Not just you and
your brother; the aunts and neph-
ews, cousins and in-laws, and dont
forget that crazy fourth cousin, twice
removed, from Hoboken. Everybody.
Family reunions are gaining in popular-
ity, drawing extended families closer.
Where, you may ask, can you fit all of
those people? How about a state park?
There is plenty of room for the
crowd at Crowder State Park,
four miles west of Trenton. There is
an organized group area with picnic
sites and shelters. The park features
camping, hiking, mountain biking and
equestrian trails, and a lake for fishing
and swimming.
If a multiday party is more your style,
you cant beat Mockville Land and
Cattle Company Guest Ranch in
Mercer. They have cabins ranging
from one bedroom to units that sleep
10. Their Broken Spoke Lodge is perfect
for group get-togethers; it has a large
fireplace, a conversation area, room to
dance, a full kitchen and dining hall, and
a bar (BYOB). Activities include fish-
ing, nature trails, horseback riding (they
have horses or bring your own), camp-
fires and relaxing quietwell, except for
the rowdy family members.
BASEBALL BONANZA
Kauffman Stadium, home of the Kansas City
Royals, will host the 2012 Major League Baseball
All-Star Game. Although it would be sweet to do so,
you dont have to secure tickets to the All-Star Game to
have a great baseball experience in Kansas City.
Kauffman Stadium, nicknamed The K, is one of
baseballs most beautiful ballparks and boasts two very
unique features: the 322-foot Water Spectacular, the
largest privately funded fountain in the world; and the
Crown Vision scoreboard, the largest high-definition
scoreboard in all of Major League Baseball. Single-
game tickets are reasonably priced, some starting in
the $10$15 range.

Mount Pleasant is one of several wineries in the Augusta
area. You find Augusta Brewing Company, Blumenhof
Winery, Sugar Creek Winery and Vineyards, Augusta
Winery, Montelle Winery, Chandler Hills Vineyards,
Noboleis Vineyards, and Yellow Farmhouse Winery; each
offers unique wines to tempt your taste buds.
If youre planning a weekend in the area, there are plenty of
bed and breakfast inns and guest houses from which to choose.
Looking for Southern elegance? Consider the Augusta Wine
Country Inn, described as a Gone-With-the-Wind-style home.
Constructed circa 1885, the home sits on more than one acre
and overlooks Missouri River bluffs. If youd rather experi-
ence a getaway with German flair, check out the Stoneridge
Vineyard Bed and Breakfast, which resembles a Bavarian
country estate. Suites feature cathedral ceilings and jetted tubs;
and you can make arrangements to have a massage on-site.
Within an hour or so of Augusta, dozens of wineries and
bed and breakfast inns await in charming communities such
as Berger, New Florence, New
Haven and Hermann where de-
licious wines are abundant and
friendly innkeepers will show
you true Missouri hospitality.
If your crew is more inter-
ested in big-city excitement,
explore the metropolitan offer-
ings in the St. Louis area. There
are countless dining, lodging
and shopping opportunities.
And dont forget the spas, ca-
sinos, performance venues and
iconic Missouri attractions.
A great day in the St. Louis
area might include shopping
at the Saint Louis Galleria,
with high-end stores; or
Plaza Frontenac, where you
find Missouris only Neiman
Marcus. And dont forget the
Delmar Loop (or simply, The
Loop). This six-block area has
m The iconic Gateway Arch frames the Old Courthouse
in downtown St. Louis.
o See botanical beauty at the Jewel Box in Forest Park, St. Louis.
Wild,
Wild life
There are plenty of places to go wild
in Missouri, but the Northeast Region
has dozens of sites where the resi-
dents, not the visitors, are the wild ones.
Among them are the Endangered
Wolf Center and the World Bird
Sanctuary.
The Endangered Wolf Center in
Eureka helps raise endangered wolf
species for federal release programs.
Tours of the facility are offered, but
reservations are required.
Not far from Eureka, in Valley
Park, the World Bird Sanctuary show-
cases bald eagles, owls, falcons and
even reptiles. Visitors are welcome to
learn more about the sanctuarys ef-
forts; admission is free.

more than 100 shops, boutiques, restaurants and entertain-
ment venues. Or maybe youd rather explore the quaint main
street shops in downtown St. Charles. Antique and specialty
shops, along with boutiques and art galleries, dot the streets
of this historic city.
After shopping, popular lunch stops are found at Westport
Plaza in Maryland Heights. Looking for something specific?
Try The Good Pie for unique pizzas, or Annie Gunns in
Chesterfield for robust meals. Have a light lunch at Crown
Candy Kitchen; just remember to wash it down with one of
their world-famous sundaes, malts or shakes.
During the afternoon, pamper yourself with a trip to one of
St. Louis finest spas. Consider the Solara Health Club and Spa,
inside the Westin Hotel in the heart of downtown. Another
well-known St. Louis hotel, the Chase Park Plaza, offers a va-
riety of massage services, from express pedicures to 90-minute
massages, at their on-site Salon and Spa at the Chase.
When the sun goes down, the nightlife in St. Louis heats up,
meaning theres always something to do. A great way to start
your night in St. Louis is with a meal on The Hill, which features
some of the finest Italian cuisine this side of Naples. Favorites
include Zias, Charlie Gittos and Trattoria Marcella; what-
ever you do, be sure to experience the St. Louis tradition that
is toasted ravioli. You wont be sorry. In the Central West End,
SubZero is a popular spot for dining and drinking.
After dinner, try your luck at Lumiere Place Casino down-
town, Harrahs Casino in Maryland Heights, or Ameristar
Casino in St. Charles. Enjoy a unique bowling experience
at the Pin-Up Bowl; youve got to see this cocktail lounge/
bowling alley to believe it. Countless area bars and nightclubs
offer live entertainment nearly every night of the week. Catch
a performance at larger venues such as The Fabulous Fox
Theatre, Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, Chaifetz Arena
or Family Arena in St. Charles.
Whatever your trip entails, remember no trip
to St. Louis is complete without seeing iconic
attractions including the Gateway Arch, Old
Courthouse, St. Louis Citygarden, Forest Park
and the St. Louis Art Museum.

If you like to experience fun in the sun, rent a boat or per-
sonal watercraft, or both, from Indian Creek Marina, located
on Mark Twain Lake near Monroe City. The lake is, in es-
sence, an 18,000-acre playground where youll find quiet coves
for relaxing or riding your personal watercraft, great spots
for fishing (abundant bass and
crappie) and open water where
taking in the scenery is just part
of the fun. The area around
the lake offers camping op-
tions (including Indian Creek
Campground), equestrian
trails, lodging and restaurants.
There are plenty of places for
you and the guys to relax, no
shaving required.

Northeast Missouri, a great
place for golf is Norwoods
Golf Club in Hannibal. This
par-72 course is open to the

greens. If youre feeling good
about your driving skills, play

yard challenge. Looking for
camping options in Hannibal?

Many great farmers markets are found
throughout Missouri, and the Northeast
Region is no exception. From the
Chandler Hill Farmers Market in
Defiance to the Soulard Farmers
Market in St. Louis, fruits, vegeta-
bles, baked goods and Missouri crafts
are waiting for you to take them home.
Farmers markets in many of the
regions smaller communities offer a
great chance to spend time chatting
with the people who harvested, baked
or crafted the goods youre buying.
And in many cases, the market is akin
to a community gathering complete
with live music, which you can find at

the New Haven Farmers Market.

white-tailed deer, wild turkey and bobwhite quail. Overnight
hunting trips arent a problem in these conservation areas;
camping is allowed at each. Remember to follow all of
Missouris hunting and fishing regulations and carry your
permits at all times.
For those whod rather
shoot for the greens than at
wild game, two options in the
Kirksville area offer a chal-
lenge to golfers of all skill lev-
els. The Kirksville Country
Club is a semiprivate course
measuring more than 6,000
yards. The course has two
lakes; tee times are recom-
mended, and an on-site driv-
ing range is a great place to
warm up before your round.
Meanwhile, on Route 63 be-
tween Kirksville and Macon,
youll find the La Plata Golf
Course. This course plays
nearly 6,200 yards from the
blue tees and has plenty of
ball magnets, also known as
water hazards.
Speaking of Macon, an-
other place for outdoor fun is
the Long Branch State Park,
which features a 2,400-acre
lake, swimming beach and
campground. The lake is a
great spot for bass fishing.
Visit Macons West Winery
for a variety of wines, includ-
ing spiced fruit wines; or
head over to The Pear Tree
Restaurant, which offers one
of the finest dining experi-
ences anywhere in Missouri,
in the tiny city of Bevier
(west of Macon).
If you and the guys choose
to experience Northeast
Missouris largest city, St.
Louis, the options are, quite
frankly, endless.
Great golf outings in
the St. Louis area await at
Tapawingo National Golf
Club, with courses designed
by Gary Player, in Sunset
Hills; the Hawthorne
Course at Forest Park Golf
Club; and, if youre up to it,
consider the Quail Creek
Golf Club, said to be one of the stiffest challenges in the
metro area. These courses are popular, so remember to call
ahead for a tee time.
And no true guys getaway would be complete without
sampling suds at the end of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery
Tour, the Schlafly Bottleworks Tour (available weekends) in
Maplewood, or stopping at Lacledes Landing for fun, food
and drink at Morgan Street Brewery.

A family reunion in the Northeast
Region of Missouri can feature every-
thing from metropolitan excitement to
peaceful getaways where cell phones
are OK, but frowned upon.
Families looking for a reunion head-

A more secluded setting is
Klondike Park Campground, lo-
cated between the cities of Defiance

canoe, raft, kayak or inner tube and float
your way to a fun afternoon. In Northeast
Missouri, one of the best spots for float-
ing is the Meramec River. Outfitters who
will help you have an enjoyable journey
are found in Pacific at Forest 44 Canoe
Rental, and in Stanton at both Crosseyed
Cricket Canoe Company and Cavern
Canoe and Raft Rentals. These outfitters
may have varied summer and off-season
hours; call ahead to plan your float.
Its hard to imagine a family trip to
this area of Missouri without making
a stop at the famous Gateway Arch,
located along the Mississippi riverfront
in downtown St. Louis. Take a tram
ride to the top of this 630-foot-tall na-
tional monument and dont forget to ex-
plore the on-site Museum of Western
Expansion. Speaking of museums, plan
a stop at the St. Louis City Museum, a
one-of-a-kind activity center made from
recycled materials found inside the St.
Louis city limits. The St. Louis Science
Center, The Magic HouseSt. Louis
Childrens Museum and the Saint Louis
Zoo in Forest Park also are synonymous
with family fun.
For a different view of St. Louis, hop
aboard the Gateway Arch Riverboats,
named the Tom Sawyer and the Becky
Thatcher, for a sightseeing cruise on the
Mississippi. Among the variety of cruises
offered is the daily sightseeing cruise,
available March through November.
As for Tom and Becky, you just might
bump into them on your trip to Hannibal,
the former home of author and humor-
ist Mark Twain. In Hannibal, the Mark
Twain Boyhood Home and Museum fea-
tures two museums and six historic build-
ings, including the Becky Thatcher home.
The museum celebrates its 100th anniver-
sary of being open to the public in 2012.
Speaking of anniversaries, the year
2012 also marks the 100th anniversary
of the sinking of the Titanic. One of the
passengers on the ill-fated voyage was
Hannibals Molly Brown. Visit the Molly
Brown Birthplace and Museum to learn
more about the woman who earned the
nickname Unsinkable after surviving
the Titanic tragedy.
After visiting Mollys home, take time
to explore the Mark Twain Cave, fea-
tured prominently in The Adventures of
Tom Sawyer, and the adjacent Cameron
Cave. If youd rather cruise the river on
this section of the Mississippi, you can
do that, too, courtesy of the Mark Twain
Riverboat, which offers several types of
cruises.
The Northeast Region of Missouri is
home to 23 official Missouri State Parks
and State Historic Sites. At these locations,
learn about the First State Capitol State
Historic Site in St. Charles, and German
heritage in Hermann at the Deutschheim
State Historic Site. Then explore a cave
believed to be inhabited as long as 10,000
years ago at Graham Cave State Park
in Montgomery City, and see American
Indian rock carvings (called petroglyphs) at
Washington State Park in De Soto.

keep the entire family entertained.
For starters, each unit at Point

choosing which course or courses to play.
Our advice: Play as many as time and your
budget allow.
The Lake of the Ozarks area has courses
designed by renowned golfers. One of the
best challenges in the Lake Area is Osage
National Golf Resort in Lake Ozark. This
course features 27 holes, 18 designed by
Arnold Palmer. The course is broken up
into the Mountain Nine, River Nine and
Links Nine. Around the lake, exciting golf
outings also are found at Indian Rock
Golf Club in Laurie, Old Kinderhook in
Camdenton, and the Golf Club at Deer
Chase in Linn Creek.
Elsewhere in Central Missouri, try the
Hail Ridge Golf Course in Boonville, the
Royal Oaks Golf Course near Whiteman
Air Force Base in Knob Noster (a stealth
bomber might fly overhead, which is pretty
awe-inspiring), the Clinton Country Club
in Clinton, and Hidden Pines Country
Club in Warrensburg. A final note:
Remember to call for that tee time.
If youd rather cast a line than hit your
pitching wedge to get out of a sand trap,
the Central Region of Missouri offers sev-
eral great opportunities to do just that,
thanks to spots such as Truman Lake
near Warsaw, Bennett Spring State Park
near Lebanon, Lake Pomme de Terre
near Pittsburg, and the already men-
tioned Lake of the Ozarks. Truman Lake
is known for its outstanding crappie and
largemouth bass fishing; Bennett Spring
offers some of the best trout fishing youll
find anywhere; muskie fishing is popular
on Lake Pomme de Terre; and the Lake of
the Ozarks is known for its bass, crappie
and catfish, even walleye and paddlefish.
For an escape from work but where
Wi-Fi access is available in case you cant
completely unplug visit the Blue Jay
Farm in Dixon. This private estate offers
more than 350 acres of land, a seven-acre
lake for swimming, fishing or canoeing,
and hiking trails. Youll find a no-phones
getaway at the Reel and Trigger Resort,
near Truman Lake in Warsaw. Cabins
here accommodate smaller and larger
groups and feature extras such as fish-
cleaning stations, barbecue grills and sat-
ellite television.

ONE FOR
THE BOYS
The great outdoors beckons
men of all ages to rough it in
Southeast Missouri. Two of
Americas clearest, most beau-
tiful spring-fed rivers make
up the Ozark National Scenic
Riverways: the Jacks Fork
River and the Current River.
This is Americas first desig-
nated national park area for
a wild river stream system.
These rivers flow through pris-
tine Ozark countryside, along
towering bluffs and beside
open pasture lands. Camping,
swimming, fishing, canoeing,
exploring and just plain relax-
ing are the name of the game
here. Today, the Current and
Jacks Fork rivers remain al-
most as wild and natural as
they were when Osage Indians
trod the hills. (Note: It is against
Missouri law to have glass
nown for its rivers, streams, beautiful out-
door sites and history, Southeast Missouri
is a great region for family outings, just the girls
getaways, and trips where boys will be boys.
Whether you and your companions enjoy ad-
ventures such as float trips, beautiful country-
side views accompanied by a glass of wine, or
unique and open spaces for children to explore,
Southeast Missouri has you covered.

your RV or rent a cabin. Facilities include a pool, dining, a general
store, hot showers, modern restrooms and electric hookups. Rent
a canoe, kayak, inner tube or
small raft for a float down the

For a truly unique adven-
ture, tour Bonne Terre Mine
in Bonne Terre. This is one of
the largest man-made caverns
on earth, founded in 1860 as
Americas earliest deep-earth
lead mine. The two upper lev-
els are lighted and used for
one-hour guided walking tours
along old mule trails, showing
where miners dug with pick and
shovel in the 1860s. The lower
three levels form a 17-mile-long,
1 billion gallon, illuminated lake
which is the home of one of
the worlds largest inland scuba
diving resorts. Boat tours are
available. Guided scuba excursions, illuminated by more than
500,000 watts of stadium lighting, are conducted.
Take a drive
To see wild elk
The Missouri Department of Con-
servation, with assistance from several
partner entities, began re-introducing
wild, free-roaming elk to a special
Elk Restoration Zone in Southeast
Missouri in 2011. Efforts will continue
during the next couple of years. Elk once
were native to Missouri, but their popu-
lations were eliminated in the 1800s.
The Elk Restoration Zone spans
346 square miles and includes the Peck
Ranch Conservation Area near
Winona. If youd like to view the elk,
MDC offers a self-guided driving tour at
Peck Ranch.
Peck Ranch Conservation Area is
open daily, from sunrise to sunset. For
more information about the driving tour,
please call 855-263-2355 or visit

MISSOURI
Southwest
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
un, entertaining, excitingall words that de-
scribe a trip to Southwest Missouri. In this
region, the options for fun are pretty much limit-
less, especially if youre vacationing with the family.
Looking for a little time off with just the guys (or the
girls)? Southwest Missouri is a great choice: From
lakes, to live shows, to metropolitan fun, Southwest
Missouri truly has something for everyone.
FUN FOR THE FAMILY
The Southwest Missouri Region offers
a wonderful opportunity for your family
to reconnect and enjoy a great vacation
experience.
For starters, try one of the regions
nine Missouri State Parks and Historic
Sites. Prairie State Park in Mindenmines
is a tall-grass prairie offering hiking and
walking trails, beautiful settings and the
opportunity to see animals such as elk
and bison. Mother Natures beauty is dis-
played at Big Sugar Creek State Park in
Pineville. See woodlands, rugged bluffs,
Big Sugar Creek and the Elk River Bluffs
Natural Area.
Speaking of natures beauty, the
Missouri Department of Conservation
has Bushwhacker Lake Conservation
Area in Bronaugh, one of the few places
in Missouri where prairie chickens are
still seen. Hiking trails, horse trails, fish-
ing, camping and hunting (in season) are

permitted at this area. Wildcat Glades Conservation and
Audubon Center, located in Wildcat Park in Joplin, is adja-
cent to a globally unique habitat called the chert glades. The
site is frequented by migratory birds; on-site trails are located
along the banks of Shoal Creek.
In Branson, Silver Dollar City and White Water amuse-
ment parks are among the many family-friendly attractions.
Silver Dollar City is an 1880s-themed park where working
craftsmen showcase the trades of generations past, working
alongside modern adventure rides, shops, restaurants and
live shows. Silver Dollar City hosts several large festivals
each year, including the National Kids Fest and An Old Time
Christmas. Marvel Cave, a National Natural Landmark, is on-
site. During the summer months, one of the best ways to cool
off is to spend a day at White Water. Offering nearly 7,000
feet of water slides and a massive wave pool, not to mention a
special area designed for small children, White Water offers
a great excuse to have fun in the sun. Just remember to pack
your waterproof sunscreen.
After several years in eastern Missouri,
in 2011 the National Tiger Sanctuary
relocated to Saddlebrooke, about 10 min-
utes north of Branson. At this sanctuary,
you have the opportunity to visit tigers
up close for an outstanding educational
experience.
In Springfield, the Dickerson Park
Zoo offers a great family getaway and a
chance to get up-close-and-personal and
we mean really personal with giraffes.
Special platforms at the zoo offer guests
the chance to have giraffes, quite literally,
eating out of the palm of their hands. The
zoo has different themed areas, includ-
ing sections that focus on the animals of
Africa and Tropical Asia. Another wild experience awaits at
Wild Animal Safari, located in Stafford, about 15 minutes
northeast of Springfield. See lions, tigers, kangaroos, elk, bison
and more; explore the walk-
ing trail to find more timid
creatures, such as lemurs, pea-
cocks and alpacas.
m Hodgson Water Mill near Sycamore once provided ground grains as
well as electricity using the power of the stream flowing by.
o Scenic Glade Top Trail near Ava is ideal for horseback riding.

ONE FOR THE BOYS
With baseball, four lakes, sections of the Mark Twain National
Forest, incredible golf courses and some great places to chow
down, the Southwest Region of Missouri truly is a paradise for
guys looking to take a break
from everyday life.
In Springfield, stop for a
baseball game at Hammons
Field, home of the Class AA
Springfield Cardinals, the
Texas League affiliate of the
St. Louis Cardinals. Games
run April through September
and tickets are reasonably
priced, ranging from $8$24.
Ask about seats in Redbirds
Roost, where you find a great
view of the game, plus all-
you-can-eat ballpark foods.
After the game, enjoy a drink
at Springfield Brewing
Company and Restaurant,
which offers several ales and
lagers, along with a menu full
of great choices.
Now, on to the l akes:
Stockton, Table Rock, Taney-
como and Bull Shoals. Each
of these lakes has unique fea-
tures, whether youre into
boating and relaxing or con-
sider yourself a serious angler.
Cities around these lakes in-
clude Branson, Kimberling
City, Indian Point, Cape Fair,
Hollister, Rockaway Beach
and Forsyth.
Stockton Lake is known
for clear waters and a nearly
continuous breeze that makes
it a favorite among sailboat en-
thusiasts. Interested in fishing?
This lake is known for walleye,
but also has good populations
of largemouth and smallmouth
bass, catfish and crappie.
Need a little assistance find-
ing the fish? One of the areas
guide services is Thompsons
Fishing Guide Service, offer-
ing full-day or half-day trips.
Table Rock Lake is known
for its clear waters, so scuba
diving is among the popular activities, as are boating, swim-
ming and fishing. Largemouth bass, catfish and crappie abound
in Table Rock. Area guides help ensure your fishing trip is a
successful one; among them are Petes Professional Guide
Service in Galena and White River Outfitters in Blue Eye.
Lake Taneycomo offers some of the finest rainbow- and
brown-trout fishing anywhere in the U.S., and it is stocked
with some 750,000 10-inch to 12-inch trout each year. Find
assistance from Chartered Waters Trout Shop and Guide
Service in Hollister, Anglers and Archery Fishing Guides in
Branson, and River Run Outfitters, also in Branson.
The Missouri section of Bull Shoals Lake also offers some of
the clearest lake waters youll find anywhere and, like Table Rock
Lake, is a destination for scuba diving. Bull Shoals is known for
walleye, smallmouth bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish. Guides
who provide assistance on Bull Shoals include Captain Joes
Guide Service in Hollister and Ricks Chauffeured Fishing
Guide Service out of Springfield.
If your guys-only trip centers on the great outdoors,
Southwest Missouri is a great place. In the Cassville area of
the Mark Twain National Forest, which includes the cities
of Reeds Spring, Shell Knob and Lampe and is adjacent to
Roaring River State Park, take advantage of the opportunities
to camp, fish, boat and hike. You can explore Roaring River
Hatchery and Trout Park, located near Cassville.
In the forests Ava section, near the cities of Forsyth, Protem
and Theodosia, horseback riding and ATV riding are permitted
in some parts; areas for camping, hiking, boating and swimming
also are available. The Willow Springs section, near Van Zant
and Dora, offers the opportunity to hike, ride horseback, boat
and fish, as well as other activities.
As for golf, well, the choices in Southwest Missouri are pretty
much wide open, unlike the fairways at some of the more chal-
lenging courses. Youre probably well aware the Branson area is
home to amazing courses, such as Thousand Hills Golf Course
and Pointe Royale Golf Course; while Hollister has the incred-
ible Branson Creek Golf Club. And Springfield has excellent
courses, including the Bill and Payne Stewart Golf Course,
named in honor of two of the regions all-time great golfers.
Fun, challenging golf courses dot the landscape in the re-
gions smaller cities. Try the Frank E. Peters Municipal Golf
Course in Nevada, a links-style course on 200 acres of Osage
prairie, where water comes into play on 10 holes. Maybe youd
rather try the Marshfield Country Club, which plays more
than 6,000 yards from the championship tees. This is no time

Wilsons Creek
National Battlefield
As Missouri continues to commemorate
the Sesquicentennial of the American
Civil War, much attention remains fo-
cused on Southwest Missouri and its
signature Civil War sites.
One of the most important Civil
War si tes i n Southwest Mi ssouri
is the Wilsons Creek National
Battlefield in Republic. This National
Park commemorates the Battle of
Wilsons Creek, Aug. 10, 1861. It was
the second major battle of the Civil War;
more than 2,500 soldiers died dur-
ing five hours of fighting. Today, the

changing exhibits. Take the self-guided
road tour to see Bloody Hill, the John

to forget your driver. For views of Bull
Shoals Lake, try the Theodosia Country
Club, a nine-hole, par 35 course. Play it
twice, its still very nice. Another nine-
hole challenge is found at the Gene Pray
Memorial Golf Course in El Dorado
Springs. Rolling terrain and Bermuda
grass fairways are the key features of
this course.
Speaking of El Dorado Springs, do
you remember the opening paragraph of
this piece where great places to chow
down was mentioned? Well, weve come
to it. El Dorado Springs is the home of
The Rusty Jug Barbecue and Root Beer
Saloon. This restaurant is known for a
variety of great barbecue dishes, but its
famous forare you ready?deep-fried
ribs. Rural Missouri Magazine gave The
Rusty Jug its coveted best of award for
Best Barbecue in Southwest Missouri in
both 2010 and 2011, as well as naming it
the regions Best Restaurant in 2011.
Another place where portion size
and calorie counting are forbidden
words is Lamberts II in Ozark. This
restaurant is the sister site of the fa-
mous Lamberts in Sikeston. But this
is no little sister; the rolls are still
throwed, the pass-arounds are still
plentiful and the portions are so large,
youll need a doggy bag for the doggy
bag you take home to Fido.
Civil War sites
in Southwest
Missouri
Additional sites where you find information
and resources on our nations Civil War
are found in Carthage, Nevada, Springfield,
Ozark and Butler.
In Carthage, explore both the Carthage
