Romantic Places in Missouri

Central Missouri’s St. Charles is where Louis & Clark set off on their expedition and the Katy Trail begins. Located 25 miles south of St. Louis, St. Charles’ restored historic district and waterfront evokes the ambience of the 19th century. Hike or bike the scenic 225 mile Katy Trail — mostly following the Missouri River — from St. Charles past wine country and farms to the oldest mountains in the U.S., the southern Missouri’s Ozarks. The meandering Missouri River flows from St. Louis in the east to Kansas City in the west.
