Fun Activities to do in Missouri.
If a ranking of the US most popular states was done, anyone can tell those which will be at the top and the ones that will go to the bottom. You cannot expect Missouri to be in the top five but it doesnt mean it will be at the bottommost part either. It occupies the 31st position. The ranking cannot take away the many things you can do at Missouri. There are plenty of family-friendly attractions, natural beauty, and even history. One of the places you should visit in Missouri is Gateway Arch, St. Louis. It features a mid-century modern design. 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. This is the tallest structure in the whole country that is man-made raising 30 feet above the ground. Every visitor will learn something about the mid-western history during a visit to this arch. The museum has information about the early settlers and pioneers who shaped the history of Missouri. The tram ride started in 1967, just 2 years after the construction of the arch was completed. You will be able to see up to 30 miles away from the arch when the day is clear. After your visit at the arch, you can get into a riverboat ride to experience the water travel back in the 1800s.
Your visit in Missouri is not complete if you have not been to Anheuser-Busch Brewery, St. Louis. There are a lot of Anheuser-Busch breweries all over the country but it was all born in St. Louis in the 1800s. There are so many activities at St. Louis Anheuser-Busch factory every day including brewing classes, a beer museum tour, a brewery tour, and even Biergarten. If you wish to see the Clydesdales in their paddocks then you can have that as well. Expect this tour to take about 45 minutes. Besides a visit to the Clydesdales stables, you also get a chance to taste the beers. After the brewery tour is wrapped out, you can proceed to the Old Lyon Schoolhouse too. If you want to see beer-making history artifacts, this place will satisfy your curiosity. 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. You can count on the restaurants to give you interesting meals like bratwurst plates, as well as pulled pork sandwiches and the beer, never stops flowing. Another thing you should include in your itinerary is the Silver Dollar City Theme Park, Branson. Besides being the oldest amusement park in the state of Missouri, it is also the Largest. Here are more fun activities you should not leave out on your visit to Missouri.
