We took an Amtrak train to Jefferson City, MO this past weekend. (Which, by the way, I totally recommend taking a train instead of driving! Really adds to the experience!) We were there for about 6 hours, and fit a lot of stuff into that short amount of time!
1. Capitol Hill
Capitol Hill is beautiful. There is so much to see! There are monuments, fountains, a waterfall, a beautiful view of the river, and of course: the Capitol building.
You can spend a lot of time just seeing all of the landscaping around the Hill. Then, you can take a tour inside the building. They offer guided tours, and self-guided options.
2. The Missouri State Penitentiary
The regular two hour tour is $15 a person and you get to see the courtyard, two of the buildings, the dungeon and the gas chamber . You’re also allowed to take as many photos as you’d like.
3. The Governer’s Mansion
4. The Downtown Area.
There is a good variety of places to eat in Downtown Jefferson City. We ate at J.P. Fenny’s. Good food at affordable prices!
There are also a ton of adorable shops to check out while you’re there .
Everything in Jefferson City is so beautiful. It has a peaceful, small town feel to it, while still having plenty of amenities!
