Paddle 340 Miles of the Mighty Missouri—Nonstop
No self-respecting river rat should resist the challenge of paddling the world’s longest nonstop river race, which traverses an entire state in three and a half days. The Missouri River 340, from Kansas City to St. Louis (technically, St. Charles) is something of a Wild West race, with few restrictions other than reasonable safety regulations (nav lights, no jousting with barges) and the need to finish within 88 hours."

Meramec Caverns
Meramec Caverns is the collective name for a 4.6-mile (7.4 km) cavern system in the Ozarks, near Stanton, Missouri.
