Augusta, Missouri has been named among the “10 Cutest Small Towns in the Midwest.”
“The Midwest isn’t typically known for its sights and vistas, like other regions of the country that are set in mountains or along the coast, but Augusta, Missouri is a bit different. The small town, not far from St. Louis, attracts visitors every fall because of its stunning scenery, which is just part of what makes Augusta such a cute town.
“As you enter Augusta, you may feel like you are stepping into a small town USA movie set,” says travel writer Casandra Karpiak, the co-founder of Savoteur. “Visitors can stroll the idyllic downtown, hop on the free trolley to go wine tasting at the local wineries, rent bikes to spend a day on the Katy Trail, or relax on one of the many patios overlooking the stunning fall foliage throughout the valley.”
Augusta, with a population of just over 200, is a popular stop along the Katy Trail, a bike and walking trail that extends for more than 220 miles along the Missouri River.”
Missouri’s Augusta region has recently been on display. Tom Wilmer, host of the six-time award winning NPR podcast Journeys of Discovery with Tom Wilmer, recently spent several days in Missouri’s wine country to learn more about what makes it special and how leaders in the industry are investing in its future.
