In the US, there are states which are well loved and some not so much. While Missouri will not go to the top of the list, it wont be at the bottom either. It is ranked at the 31st position. There is so much to see and do in Missouri which means you should not let the ranking fool you. You will have it all in Missouri ranging from history and natural beauty to family-friendly attractions. One of the places you should visit in Missouri is Gateway Arch, St. Louis. It will quench your curiosity as far as mid-century modern design goes. You can check out the museum housed by the building and if you want to get a ride to the top there is a tram that will take you there in just 4 minutes. The arch is 630 feet high which makes it the tallest man-made structure in the country. This arch gives every visitor some information about mid-western history. The museum has information about the early settlers and pioneers who shaped the history of Missouri. The tram ride has been open to the public since 1967 after the construction ended in 1965. You will be able to see up to 30 miles away from the arch when the day is clear. Once you have had enough of the arch there is also a riverboat ride that gives you a taste how people in the 1800s were traveling in water.
Your visit in Missouri is not complete if you have not been to Anheuser-Busch Brewery, St. Louis. You may have seen a lot of Anheuser-Busch breweries in the country but it all goes back to St. Louis in the 1800s. At the St. Louis Anheuser-Busch factory, you can get a brewery tour, a beer museum tour, a Biergarten and even brewing classes. For the enthusiasts who wish to see Clydesdales in their paddocks up close, that can be arranged as well. The brewery tour will take up to 45 minutes. Besides a visit to the Clydesdales stables, you also get a chance to taste the beers. Once this tour is finished, you can go to the Old Lyon Schoolhouse. You will interact with over four hundred artifacts concerning the history of making beer over the centuries. You can go to the Biergarten if you wish to dine at a German-style restaurant and the better part is that it not only has outdoor seating but also an indoor one. The beer is always flowing at this restaurant and the menu is also rich with items like pulled pork sandwiches and also bratwurst plates. Something else you should not forget about when making your itinerary is the Silver Dollar City Theme Park, Branson. It is the largest and oldest amusement park in the state.
