A visit to a small town usually means relaxation, smiles from just about everyone we pass by, and an overall laidback vibe. While big cities offer non-stop excitement, small towns typically move at a slower pace, making it easy for us to enjoy every moment. Luckily, the Show-Me State is home to some truly lovely little locales that make for wonderful, walkable day trips or weekend getaways. A darling small town, Fulton is a picture-perfect destination all year round, with one of the most walkable downtowns in Missouri, to boot.
