Jefferson City, Mo. — If the approach of winter doesn’t already have you thinking about your summer vacation, the 2013 Official Missouri Travel Guide certainly will.
The Missouri Division of Tourism (MDT) has published its 2013 Official Missouri Travel Guide, a carry-along travel-planning tool for visitors seeking information about the Show-Me State’s incredible lineup of attractions and destinations. The cover is an inviting scene showing a couple enjoying a beautiful sunset over the Lake of the Ozarks.
This annual publication offers information on thousands of Missouri tourism assets – from public tours and museums to live-show venues and ziplines – plus lodging options, golf courses, wineries, breweries, campgrounds, canoe outfitters and Missouri State Parks and Historic Sites.
“The Missouri Travel Guide continues to be a popular and useful tool for travelers to enjoy,” says Katie Steele Danner, MDT’s director. “Missouri has a diverse tourism industry, and we’re pleased to share the Show-Me State with future visitors.”
