Missouri Vacation Packages

In the Show-Me state, visitors explore two major rivers. The region has played important roles in history, both factual and fictional.

Much of the excitement and lore of Missouri centers on the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. As part of the Louisiana Purchase, the state represented a starting point for travelers making major westward migration.

St. Louis is a bustling city on the Mississippi River. Appreciate the city’s diverse attractions, from the majestic Cathedral Basilica to the more earthly factory tour of the Anheuser-Busch brewery. Along the way visit the St. Louis Zoo and the kid-centered City Museum or relax in Forest Park.

The showpiece of St. Louis is the Gateway Arch. Ride the tram to the top height of 630 feet (192 meters). On clear days, you’ll see for 30 miles (48 kilometers) in any direction. The arch represents the role St. Louis played over 200 years ago as a gateway for pioneers traveling westward in the Louisiana Territory. Take a riverboat cruise to see daytime or evening views of the city’s modern skyline. Travel to the mouth of the Missouri River to investigate the workings of the locks and dam.  

Visit the small northern town of Hannibal to see the Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum and appreciate how the nearby Mississippi River inspired the adventures of the author’s well-known fictional characters, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Several blocks away, tour the Hannibal History Museum, with an exhibit about another local resident, the “unsinkable” Molly Brown, who survived the sinking of the Titanic.

In the southern part of the state, Branson has evolved as a major center for live music and wholesome family fun. At the more than 50 theaters you can find music from ABBA to Dolly Parton to fantastic tenors, along with comedy and magic. 

Not far away are Missouri’s Ozark Mountains, fantastic for hiking and fishing. Get a guide and go spelunking or cave exploring. Marvel Cave lives up to its name, especially on a tour led by a guide in period costume carrying a lantern for light. Visit the Silver Dollar City theme park to access the cave.

Q: Should I book a car while on vacation in Missouri?

A: Many travelers like to use public transportation or ride-sharing services when they're visiting Springfield or Columbia. It's an excellent way of avoiding pesky parking fees and having to navigate through challenging city traffic. But if you're planning to venture out of town and experience the region of Greene County or elsewhere, you may want to think about booking a car. Get your scenic road trip off to an awesome start by clicking on our guide to Cheap Car Hire in Missouri.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a vacation to Missouri?

A: There are a couple of options. Whichever one of these major airports you land at in Missouri, you're sure to receive a warm welcome when you get off the plane:

  • St. Louis, MO (STL-Lambert-St. Louis Intl.): 125 international flights per month.
  • Kansas City, MO (MCI-Kansas City Intl.): 38 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a vacation to Missouri?

A: Missouri is filled with excellent accommodations. Hotels are a reliable option. Motels, condos and private vacation homes are worth considering too.

Q: What does a Missouri vacation booking with Expedia include?

A: As much as you want it to. You can lock in a hotel, flight or car. You can also make things easier by combining any of these together. Why not add in some attractions and activities in Missouri to round things off?

Q: What is the best way to save money on my vacation to Missouri?

A: Expedia works hard to help you get the best deals. So, when you combine your Hotel, Rental Car and Experiences, you can be sure you're going to save a few dollars. Organize your vacation with us today and get to Missouri with some extra spending money.

Q: What are the best things to do in Missouri?

A: If Springfield has found its way onto your itinerary, you have tons of options. The most frequented include Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, Missouri State University and Mercy Hospital Springfield — find your way to these to find out why.

Columbia is another popular stop on travelers' itineraries. University of Missouri, Columbia Mall and Mizzou Arena are great things to have a look at while you're here.

But if you're only visiting Joplin, you still won't be short on options. North Park Mall, Precious Moments Chapel and George Washington Carver National Monument are just the start.
