It’s time to hit the road! Experience everything scenic, historic, and down-right unique about the Show Me State by embarking on this wonderful route. From great breakfast spots, to frightening haunted attractions, to cozy overnight accommodations, you’ll enjoy every moment of this perfect fall road trip in Missouri. 

The Roasterie, Kansas City, MO

Start this road trip off with some energizing coffee from the Roasterie in Kansas City. In addition to the specialty coffees they serve here, the Roasterie also offers some great tea, as well as awesome coffee mugs and cups.

Union Station, Kansas City, MO

Once you’ve gotten good and awake at the coffee shop, head on over to Union Station. You’ll be treated to scenic views with lots of history. Established in 1914, Union Station is a great place for adventure.

Beer Kitchen, Kansas City, MO

After you’ve toured the sites at Union Station, get ready for a great lunch at Beer Kitchen, where you’ll enjoy honest food and carefully-selected beer. 

Amity Woods Nature Park, Kansas City, MO

When you’re ready to work off that great lunch, head out to Amity Woods Nature Park for a great hike. This beautiful spot has nearly 50 acres for you to explore.

Scare Fest, St. Louis, MO

Once you’ve had your fill of apples, head out to St. Louis to give yourself a good fright. Take your pick from some of the scariest haunted houses in St. Louis! 

Three Sixty, St. Louis, MO

You’ll need a place to unwind after this stretch of the road trip. We recommend St. Louis’ bar, Three Sixty. This is the ultimate rooftop bar, sitting some 400 feet above downtown St. Louis.

Hampton Inn St. Louis-Downtown, St. Louis, MO

Ready to rest? The Hampton Inn is the perfect spot to do so in St. Louis. You’ll appreciate the good night’s sleep you’ll get here (at a reasonable price, too!)
