Mountain Grove Vacations
For a truly authentic Southwest Missouri vacation, make sure you also look beyond Mountain Grove and taste the scenic and cultural treasures the region has to offer. Two places in the vicinity of Mountain Grove are Willow Springs, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the northwest, and Houston, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southwest.
Springfield, is another good spot to discover. It is around 55 miles (89 kilometers) from Mountain Grove and offers a wide range of things to do and see, such as Hammons Field, Fantastic Caverns and Crystal Cave. American National Fish and Wildlife Museum, Missouri State University and Dickerson Park Zoo are also good places to spend some time.
When the weather is fine, why not hit the road and check out Southwest Missouri's farms?.
No vacation is complete without a good dose of R&R. Shore fishing is one way to relax here and cycling is another. See a side of Mountain Grove most visitors don't see by accompanying a knowledgeable local on one of the winery tours.
Sadly, vacations can't go on forever, so when it's time return home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Fort Leonard Wood, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the north.
