Come explore our stories, our culture and our quirks. (You’ll go home inspired.)
We can’t tell you one great reason to visit St. Joseph … because there are one hundred. Set out for our brick streets downtown to see the Sculpture Walk and then head for a show at the Missouri Theater. Take in the view of the rolling Missouri River and bluffs along the trail at the Remington Nature Center. Stroll miles and miles of paved parkway trails, or catch a summer KC Chiefs practice at Missouri Western State University. Enjoy crowd-friendly antics watching a Mustangs game, our wooden-bat league that boasts one of Midwest’s best community stadiums. Get inspired at the Walter Cronkite Memorial, the nationally-acclaimed Patee House Museum (a former 1860s “Wild West” hotel) or at the unusual Glore Psychiatric Museum collections. Kick back with a picnic during one of our downtown summer concerts or festivals, right in the heart of downtown at Coleman Hawkins Park. Sound Uncommon? It IS. Come see for yourself.
