Midway between St. Louis and Kansas City lies Columbia, a thriving destination for education, culture, history, and natural beauty. In 100 Things to Do in Columbia, Missouri, Before you Die, readers will discover the city’s hidden treasures and why it draws so many visitors—and why so many decide to make it their home.
Columbia, Missouri is a growing city of just over 120,000, but has never lost its signature, small-town vibe. Take in the stunning views from the soaring, rocky bluffs of its state parks and conservation areas. Celebrate the city’s thriving art community on First Fridays in the North Village Arts District. Enjoy national and international cultural events such as the Roots ’N Blues music festival and the True/False Film Fest. Cheer for the Mizzou Tigers beside some of the most rabid SEC football and basketball fans in the country. And you don’t even think of visiting unless you’re ready to sample the best home-made, hand-tossed pies in the mid-west, found only at the iconic Shakespeare’s Pizza.
Local author and long-time Columbia resident, Stephen Paul Sayers, takes you on an insider’s tour of the city he calls home. With seasonal and themed itineraries for music, art, and history lovers, shoppers, and outdoor enthusiasts, 100 Things to Do in Columbia, Missouri, Before You Die serves up a daily adventure on every page.
