I'm wondering if someone can recommend a town to spend the night in between KC and St. Louis in mid-June. It could be away from the freeway...a quintessential Missouri if that is possible. I've looked a little at Columbia and Jefferson City. Any comments about these places or any others? My wife and I are travelling with a baby.
On another note: Are there any type of foods (besides BBQ) that are unique to KC or Missouri? How about soft drinks or beer?
