North West Missouri
A day trip north from Route 66 will lead you through the Lake of the Ozarks into Kansas City. The north west region is filled with outdoor activities, "big city" night life and rural history. You can take in the art collections at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art or spend the afternoon exploring the regions many historic sites. With so much history and culture, you'll find it hard to return to the Mother Road.
