This Tiny Town In Missouri Has A Little Bit Of Everything
It sometimes seems like St. Louis and Kansas City get the best of everything. These cities have major theaters, professional sports teams, shopping malls, restaurants and more. However, what they don’t have is the slow paced charm of small town life. While you can find green space to enjoy in the city, nothing compares to the sprawling state parks that you’ll find spread out between our two largest cities. One tiny town in Missouri seems to have it all. You’ll find lots of opportunities for outdoor recreation, antique shopping, and great dining in Macon, Missouri.
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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
