“Missouri is the country’s best destination for family friendly outdoor adventures,” says Missouri Division of Tourism Director Katie Steele Danner. “With a renowned collection of state parks, abundant camping options, some of the country’s best hiking and biking trails and beautiful waterways, Missouri offers exciting and unique experiences for outdoor enthusiasts.”
During every season and in every corner of the Show-Me State, you find options for exploring and enjoying the outdoors. Whether you’re watching and photographing migrating birds in the winter months, hitting the golf links in the spring, taking a relaxing canoe trip when temperatures rise in the summer or going for a hike when the leaves turn in the fall, outdoor fun in Missouri never goes out of season.
One of the best ways to see Missouri is to travel across the state on the Katy Trail, the longest rails-to-trails conversion in the U.S. Stretching nearly 240 miles, the Katy Trail offers great views of the Missouri River, passes through or near several cities – including Missouri’s capital, Jefferson City – and offers convenient access to shopping, dining, lodging and Missouri wineries.
“Of course, Katy Trail is just one of the many outdoor attractions found in the Show-Me State,” says Danner. “Kayakers know we’re home to pristine waterways such as the Eleven Point River, while anglers enjoy Missouri for the variety of fishing options available at destinations such as Table Rock Lake, Lake of the Ozarks and Truman Reservoir. Show caves, golf courses, hiking trails and public lands for hunting and other forms of recreation are all part of the outdoor experience in Missouri.”
