Hey gang! My friend and I are doing a road trip through the south and midwest around the end of November. We'll be in Branson on and around Thanksgiving, and will be doing the Dixie Stampede and a few other touristy things in the area. Then we'll be driving to St Louis...we've allotted quite a bit of time for this drive because we've both been to St Louis before and we'll only stop there quickly to visit friends. We're hoping to kill most of the time on the drive from Branson to St Louis...anyone have any good ideas? I have a "road trip USA" sort of book but it only points out main stretches of highway going up and down or across the country, and doesn't really focus on these random drives. We're willing to go about 30 minutes from the route unless it's a MUST SEE...then I think we'll go an hour.
Thanks for your help! I love Missouri and can't wait to return!
