The Midwest state that was home to Mark Twain and explored by Lewis and Clark celebrates its rich American history while also offering plenty of modern-day entertainment and attractions. Flights to Missouri allow a bird's-eye view of the Missouri River and Ozark Mountains. Once you check into one of the hotels in Missouri, get ready to visit the St. Louis Gateway Arch, go spelunking through caves, and enjoy nightly live performances in Branson.
The Show Me State has plenty to show off. Doubling up on professional sports teams seems to be a trend, as there are two MLB teams (St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals) and two NFL teams (Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Rams). The season you purchase plane tickets to Missouri will determine which sports you can watch and other seasonal activities you can attend. Missouri experiences four full seasons, so springtime baseball also brings welcome warm weather that will have you excited to roam the cobblestone streets in the Landing neighborhood of St. Louis or saddle up for horseback riding. As the weather heats up for summer, cool off with water sports near Table Rock Lake, attend the annual star-studded Fourth of July fireworks celebration in St. Louis, or enjoy one of the state's many water parks. Fall football kickoff also brings the end of tornado season and the gorgeous changing of leaves that will make a hike in the Ozarks worth the trip. Snow is a common occurrence for Missouri winters, providing all the more reason to explore the state's museums, including the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Museum of Transportation, City Museum, and Titanic Museum.
