This Charming Town in Missouri is Perfect for a Summer Day Trip

This state offers daytrippers plenty of fun-packed options, but no town is as picturesque and so very Missouri as Hermann. Located just east of the center of the state, this hamlet was founded in 1842 by German immigrants looking to carve out their own version of the Rhineland in the U.S.. The best part: Not only did the Germans bring over their quaint architecture, but it also just so happens that Hermann’s rocky, steep land is good for only one thing (and it’s the best thing): grape-growing.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
