Where in Missouri is...?



Hi!

After our whirlwind trip across the
states yesterday we are staying in
Missouri to find J. We will head to
almost the middle of the state for
it. It is also midway between Kansas
City and St. Louis too. Looking at the
map above, you will see Jefferson 
City is our stop for the day.

Located on the southern side of the
Missouri River and on the western
edge of the Missouri Rhineland-
one of the major wine producing
regions in the Midwest.

Jefferson City is the capital of the
state. It is named after Thomas
Jefferson our 3rd president. It was
chosen to be the capital in 1821
while Jefferson was still alive.

It is the 15th largest city in Missouri.

Rand Mc Nally named it America's
"Most Beautiful" small town in 2013.

I'm not sure how it can be a large
city and a small town too????

For those of you like wine come to
Missouri. The wineries here have
some of the best wines you'll taste!

We can thank the German immigrants
for planting the vineyards. They are
located in the small towns on both
sides of the Missouri River.

Jefferson City is the sister city to the
German city Munchburg. The historic
German section of the city is called
"Old Munichburg."


Come by tomorrow for K.

~Keep on Dreaming~
