Bothwell Lodge State Historic Site

With a commanding view from atop a bluff, Bothwell Lodge State Historic Site is one of the best representations of early 20th Century sensibilities in the Midwest. Walk through the 31-room, 12,000-square-foot lodge built atop two natural caves by Sedalia lawyer John Homer Bothwell. You will marvel at the owner’s eclectic tastes and how a country gentlemen furnished a recreational lodge for himself and his friends. Most of the furnishings in the house are original, and the property also has a three-mile hiking and mountain biking trail.

This clean and historic park is just minutes north of Sedalia on 65 highway. It is always kept clean and well-mowed. There are hiking trails through beautiful wooded scenery, an excellent picnic and park area that is great for the kids, and a beautiful historic home that contains features and amenities well ahead of it's time that has guided tours. This is a great place to take your family and spend the day without worrying about someone getting bored and running out of things to do. Well worth the trip and you will not be disappointed.

Trails End Monument

Reviewed By Cavydad - Camarillo, California

Tribute to the cattle drive and cowboys. We happened upon the monument, it had not been on our road trip itinerary. But often Little is as we meander, look at post cards, and visit tourism offices. This monument should be heavily promoted. I found this of greater interest than the steel arch in Saint Louis. But then I enjoy trains. Great job, Sedalia!

Super cool building and outdoor landscaping. Great stop for photos. Inside display of Scott Joplin history is out of this world. Attention to every detail in the displays, showcase a collection of ragtime music & Joplin memorabilia....very interesting. You can spend some time checking it all out so don't stop when you're in a hurry! Employees are very happy to answer questions.

Reviewed By Cynmos - Overland Park, Kansas

We were actually visiting the Katy Depot Museum but struck up a conversation with a gentleman from Champion Bicycles. In addition to repairs for bikers on the Katy Trail they also sell and rent bicycles. We have long talked about biking the Katy Trail so now we can feel confident that we can rent a reliable bike that is well maintained and suited for us. Thanks guys.

Daum Museum of Contemporary Art

Reviewed By J F - Columbia, Missouri

This contemporary art museum looks like it belongs in a metropolis such as Chicago or NYC.
The work displayed is varied and each displayed in a perfect environment of light & space.
My late ceramics professor's work was on display; seeing Don Reitz's work was a nice surprise.
Paintings, encaustics, Chihuly glass, photography, printmaking are included in the collection.
We're glad we finally made the trip to see this gem of a museum.

Sierra Bullets Factory Tour

Reviewed By Bernardo F - New York City, New York

You can stop in for a tour during the week of how bullets are made and all of the interesting things that go about how they're put together. It really is a rather unique experience. Right off of 65 across the street from the big Duke manufacturing facility.

A nice comfortable spot to have a few drinks. Friendly service. Clean. It's in a shopping center so there's plenty of parking. Certainly the prices were fantastic. And they do also serve food.
