10 Unwritten Rules Every Missourian Lives By ‘Til Death
Missouri seems like a typical Midwestern state but we have many customs that other states just don;t understand. While you won’t find any of these rules written down, you will find that most Missourians will agree with these 10 unwritten rules. Here are just a few things that many Missourians consider important.
1. Barbecue is better a little burnt.
Missourians know that the best barbecue is brisket and that it's even better when the ends are just a bit crispy.
2. Cultural activities don't have to cost an arm and a leg.
With all the free museums and parks, Missourians can learn a lot with out spending a penny! Plus, year after year our amazing cultural attractions are named as some of the best in the nation.
3. Missouri has the best wine country.
While Californians may think they have the best wines in America we know the truth. You can find amazing wines made with locally grown grapes right here in the Show Me State.
4. There is only one football team worth cheering for in Missouri.
Missouri is home to one of the best teams in football. There is nothing better than being at Arrowhead for a Chiefs win!
5. Weather forecaster's have the hardest job.
The Show Me State is know for having some pretty erratic weather. It's not uncommon to experience the weather of all four seasons in one month. Our poor weather forecaster's really have their work cut out for them.
6. There is only one king of beers.
Budwiser has been a Missouri staple for over a century. You can guarantee that a Missouri party is going to have at least a few Anheuser-Busch products behind the bar.
7. The party is at the lake.
Speaking of parties. The best place to unwind in the summer is at "the lake." No matter which lake is your favorite, you know each lake weekend is going to be a blast!
8. Caves are a big deal and we have 6,000 of them.
No matter where you live in Missouri, there is a cave nearby where you probably went for a school field trip. Missouri is often referred to as the cave state and with 6,000 known caves it's easy to understand where we got the nickname.
9. Storms are a spectators sport.
Missourians are pretty familiar with severe weather. When big thunderstorms roll in you're more likely to find us on the front porch than in the basement.
10. Fall is the best season in Missouri.
Missouri is one of the best places in the nation for fall foliage tours. With the abundance of changing leaves, rolling forested hillsides, and fabulous fall temperatures we know that Autumn is hands down the best season.
