JEFFERSON CITY AMONG THE NATION’S MOST BEAUTIFUL SMALL TOWNS

The website Implicitly.com recently ranked Jefferson City on its list of the 19 most beautiful small towns in America. The site praised the city’s design elements, stating that Jefferson City is “a prime example of small town Midwestern architecture that has been well-preserved as time has elapsed.” It also mentioned a few must-see spots in the city, including the Lewis & Clark Monument and the Missouri State Penitentiary. This is not the first time Jefferson City has been highlighted as one of the nation’s most beautiful small towns - in its “Best of the Road” contest, Rand McNally also named the city as the most beautiful small town in the nation.
Be sure to book a tour at the 47 bloodiest acres west of the Mississippi. Rich history tours that include the infamous gas chamber and heart-stopping ghost tours & hunts are available when booked in advance at www.missouripentours.com
