The 2012 Official Missouri Travel Guide, a 160-page travel companion published by the Missouri Division of Tourism (MDT) now is available. Featuring Kansas City's new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts on its cover, the guide provides information on everything from attractions and must-see sites to lodging options and regional maps.
"Although we live in an era of smart phones and GPS devices, there’s something comforting about having the printed travel guide to carry along with you on a trip,” said Katie Steele Danner, director of the MDT. “Our travel guide offers information about the unique and affordable places for visitors to enjoy in Missouri, whether they’re interested in the outdoors or museums, or just looking for a place to spend a quiet weekend.”
In addition to listings of tourism-related businesses around Missouri, the travel guide features dozens of color photos showcasing the state’s tourism assets. There are area-specific feature stories for each of Missouri’s five vacation regions: northwest, northeast, central, southeast and southwest, along with stories related to live entertainment venues, things you may not know about Missouri, and destinations that feature zip-lines, scuba diving and haunted sites.
The guide is available at a variety of locations across Missouri including local chambers of commerce, convention and visitors bureaus and welcome centers. It also is available by filling out the form here.
