Missouri is a Midwestern state with more than a dash of Dixie, and nowhere is this more evident than in the southern city of Branson, a vacation destination and entertainment hub unlike any other. The theatres lining 76 Country Boulevard offer Elvis impersonations and Dolly Parton’s Stampede – a dinner extravaganza involving horse stunts and home cooking that’s owned by the Queen of Country herself. Kansas City, Columbia, Springfield and capital Jacksonville are other great bases for urban adventure – and don’t miss out on a nighttime riverboat tour of the Mississippi in when St. Louis’ 192m-tall Gateway Arch is bathed in light.

You’re in for a treat at the Loop Ice Carnival in party-ready St. Louis, whose Loop neighborhood celebrates winter with events such as live ice-carving demonstrations, a Frozen Buns Run and a putt-putt pub crawl. The fun starts mid-January and you should stick around for the St. Louis Mardi Gras a couple weeks later, where cajun cook-offs and a wiener dog derby are on the menu.

Over in Kansas City, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade kicks off in mid-March when a solitary bagpiper leads a throng of floats and bands down streets lined with over half a million spectators as Missourians raise their glasses to all things Irish. There’s another Irish festival in the same location in August.

For a change of pace and location, join the 50 Miles of Art Gallery and Studio Tour in November or March, when artists and crafters showcase their talents along the scenic Route 79 that connects the communities of Clarksville, Louisiana and Hannibal. The latter town also hosts National Tom Sawyer Days in early July; a crowd-pleasing celebration of one of America’s greatest novelists and his most enduring character.
