Sometimes you just want to take off and really enjoy your ride, and when that mood strikes, we recommend heading toward the best scenic routes in Missouri. From the historic Route 66 to the Great River Road, grab your keys and prepare for a great adventure along the best roads in Missouri!

Great River Road

The Great River Road runs along the border of Missouri to give you fantastic views of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, along with plenty of hidden gems along the way. We recommend heading to the Mississippi Overlook Park on the way to enjoy the 40-foot observation deck, a great spot to view the St. Louis skyline. If you’re in the mood for a longer trip, this sprawling road can take you through great stops like Fort Defiance State Park or the Mark Twain Cave!

Historic Route 66

You’ve read about it in books, you’ve seen it on TV, you’ve even heard about it in songs. Now you can take to the road and experience historic Route 66 for yourself in the heart of Missouri. This legendary route was established way back in the 1920s and the path still celebrates the retro stylings of yesteryear with plenty of vintage-inspired shops and restaurants along the way. Consider stopping by Cuba’s Totem Pole Trading Post, rumored to be the oldest original business on Missouri’s Route 66!

Wine Country Tour

If you haven’t sampled wines from the heartland, why not try the Wine Country Tour to get a taste of the local offerings? The northeast region is home to many wineries that are making a big name for the Midwest, from rustic reds to thoroughly modern blends. Plan a day trip through the Montelle Winery in Augusta and Stone Hill Winery in Hermann while enjoying gorgeous views of the vineyards along the way.
