Road-Tripping through the Heartland?

After throwing around tons of ideas for consideration, I think Dan and I have found a winning location for our next adventure….Missouri. That’s right; we’re planning on taking a long drive across the Show Me State to see all that it has to offer. The itinerary we are proposing will have us starting out in St. Louis (yes, ARCH!!) and ending the journey in Kansas City. Of course, we’ll cross the border further into Kansas than Kansas City (Topeka, perhaps) as well as take a drive up to the quaint city of Falls City, Nebraska. Since we never got out of the car during our last stop in Nebraska, I don’t feel like we did the state justice. And my strange obsession with the state is just pulling me back there. One thing I am really looking forward to is stopping by some of the small cities that my dad lived in during our family’s short stint in Missouri. These include O’Fallon, New Bloomfield and Holts Summit. So Missouri, ready to show us what ya got?

Any suggestions of places to see/things to do are greatly appreciated!

Kansas City has alot of great places to visit. The Liberty Memorial, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Crown Center, and the Plaza will have the Christmas lights up for a while longer along with the horse-drawn carriage rides. Hope your road trip is productive and fun :)
