Schools are back in session and summer is almost over. Perhaps you couldn’t find the time to get away this summer, but are looking for a little adventure before temperatures cool down. Maybe you’re planning a trip this fall and are looking for ideas. Did you know Missouri has 453 small towns with populations less than 1,000?
Small town living is not for everyone but they are fun places to visit! We’ve compiled a list of a few neat little towns in Missouri with less than 500 residents. You may have never heard of some of these places, but they are rich in history and also have entertaining things to offer.
If you will be renting a vehicle for your out-of-town adventure, we’d like to offer some advice. If you carry “full coverage” or “physical damage coverage” on your auto insurance policy, you do not have to purchase coverage from the rental car company. Your liability and physical damage coverages will extend to a rental car at the same liability limits, as well as comprehensive and collision deductibles listed on your policy contract. Be sure to bring proof of your current auto insurance to the rental car agency.
Before you hit the road, you’ll want to make sure your trip is planned well enough to get you to your destination, but is flexible enough to allow for a few diversions or extra pit stops. Remember to bring a real map (you know, the paper kind?), a spare car key, some cash, and also make sure your spare tire is aired up. As always, we would like to remind you not to text and drive…or more recently, Pokemon Go and drive. Finally, make some memories, be safe, have fun, and if you visit one of the small towns listed above, post your pictures on our Facebook page!
