It's easy to take something for granted when it's practically in your own backyard. That's especially true of the Great River Road. Did you know that it's been named the best road trip you can take in America?
I'm a fan of waterfalls so there's a good chance that I'm not being objective about this, but I believe that Thunder Bay Falls in Illinois is more than worth a road trip. I'll attempt to prove my point of why you might want to bucket list this water sight.
Jesse James is one of the most controversial characters in Missouri history. To some he was a hero while many considered him the worst kind of outlaw. There is one home that contains history no one disagrees on. It's the Missouri home where Robert Ford murdered Jesse James.
If you consider yourself a bike enthusiast, there is one route through Missouri you need to know about. It's the Katy Trail which spans more than 240 miles and takes you nearly all the way across the state.
