November 1, 2018

The Wall Street Journal recently released a list named, “The 10 Most Intriguing Travel Destinations for 2019”. Missouri made the list at number six alongside a variety of destinations from across the world.

The Full List

  1. Salta, Argentina
  2. Seattle, Washington
  3. Tel Aviv, Israel
  4. Kyoto, Japan
  5. The Maldives
  6. Missouri
  7. Namibia
  8. Tunisia

  10. Nassau, the Bahamas

The article lists various reasons for Missouri’s inclusion on this diverse list of destinations. From St.Louis’ growth as a “tech hub” to the renovation of the Gateway Arch National Park to Kansas City’s more than $9 billion worth of growth and expansion to downtown over the last 10 years.

This article comes a year after the NAACP issued a travel advisory against visiting our home state. If nothing else this new list shows what Missourians have known for years; this great state is just getting better.
