According to a recent poll, road trips are the top choice for summer vacation travel for most Americans. MSN recently ranked the top destinations within one day’s drive of 50% or more of Americans, and two Missouri cities made the list.
Branson, Missouri, ranked 8th on the list of road trip destinations by MSN. Millions of tourists visit the “Live Entertainment Capital of the World” each year to experience the region’s beautiful lakes, music theaters, and world-class golf courses. But there’s more to the region than just it’s world-class attractions.
St. Louis, Missouri, ranked 9th on the list of road trip destinations. Equally located from Dallas, Denver, and Washington DC, St. Louis is within a 12-hour drive of more than half the U.S. population. It’s one of the best places in the U.S. to experience the Midwest with a vibrant downtown, award-winning restaurants, breweries, and a rich array of cultural venues all in one destination.
So, the next time you feel like getting behind the wheel and enjoying a road trip, stop by Missouri. There is more here than you might expect.
