The One Missouri Town That Transforms Into A Christmas Wonderland Each Year

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas across Missouri, especially with many corners of the state already seeing their first snowfall. Even if you’re not quite in the spirit yet, a stroll down the sidewalks of the enchanting town of Independence, festively decorated for the season, should do the trick. In fact, you’ll find so many picture-perfect ways to create holiday memories in this Christmas wonderland that the clock will strike midnight on December 31, 2018, before you know it.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
