    Missouri is nicknamed the "Show Me State," and while St. Louis and Kansas City draw the most interest, the more quiet central region between those two cities can reveal an abundance of attractions to pack into a two-day road trip. You'll even have time to charge an electric vehicle along the way. Begin in Columbia and travel through the Lake of the Ozarks, Springfield and Jefferson City for a combination of waterside scenery, historic sights, offbeat exhibits and great restaurants. You'll learn why Missouri is also known as the "Cave State" too.
    The trip works best between spring and fall to fully enjoy the outdoor adventures without any interference from snow or frigid temperatures.
    Make sure to fully charge your car before going on a road trip.
