Best Spring Vacations Within Driving Distance

Situated right in the middle of the country in Missouri, St. Louis is a great destination if you enjoy a good road trip. There are lots of fun places that you can drive to in other parts of the state, as well as in nearby Illinois, Kansas, and Indiana.

Springfield, Illinois
Less than two hours away from St. Louis, Springfield is a perfect one day-trip or weekend getaway. Rich in history, it’s best known for its ties to Abraham Lincoln. You can visit the only home he ever owned and see his final resting place. Tour the Illinois State Capitol building and take a tour of the Governor’s mansion.

Indianapolis, Indiana
Obviously, it’s famous for hosting the Indy 500 and a tour of the famous speedway is a must when you visit. But Indy is great for more than just race cars. Start with a look at the famous Monument Circle downtown and work your way to the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis – hands down the greatest museum for families in the country.

Kansas City, Missouri
Kansas City is really solidifying its spot as the cool place to be in the midwest. It’s an easy drive (mostly up I-70) and with the surrounding area growing on the Kansas side, too – you’re always sure to find something new to see or experience.

New Harmony, Indiana
New Harmony is an easy drive from Saint Louis and perfect for a one-day getaway or an added stop to an eastern road trip. It’s loaded with fascinating history, and small enough that you can literally walk around the entire town. Stop by the visitor center to watch the introductory film for an overview of the town. There are good restaurants, small shops, and bed and breakfasts if you choose to stay overnight.
