I don’t think many people go to Springfield, Missouri and I’m not sure why. It’s a small town with what looks like a vibrant downtown area in the stages of early development. It’s a University town which has beautiful buildings so its worth seeing in a small town US sense of the word.
Jefferson City, Missouri USA is a university town (Lincoln University) located in the Midwest of the country. With a vibrant downtown and many historic buildings, its worthwhile visiting. It is also the state capital, so you can explore the Capitol Building which is just next to the Missouri River. Plus its got an old prison you can visit too.
