HotelTonight – Book Jefferson City Hotels in an Instant

During a recent road trip, I found myself with a free afternoon in Jefferson City. I hadn't planned on stopping in town, but I'd been on the road for hours and needed a break. The small town seemed really inviting, so I decided to pull off the road and see what Jefferson City had to offer. I knew that finding a place to stay wouldn't be a problem, even on short notice thanks to the HotelTonight app, which left me free to enjoy my day without any stress.

The Area

Jefferson City is located in central Missouri and is near the northern edge of the Ozarks. The city is surrounded by beautiful scenery and is a great place to visit. Jefferson City has a great combination of outdoor activities and a vibrant city life. It was named one of the most beautiful small towns in the country by Rand McNally. There was so much to see and do in Jefferson City, I couldn't wait to start my day in town. I knew I was going to love every minute of my time in town.

Things to Do

There are so many great things to do in Jefferson City. I started my day out with a visit to the Missouri State Penitentiary Museum. It was so cool to see the history of the prison. Then I decided to visit the Runge Conservative Nature Center. It was a great chance to get outside and see the beautiful scenery of Missouri. There were a lot of other fun looking activities and things to do in the city that I didn't have time for. Seeing more of the city would definitely warrant another trip back to Jefferson City.

The Food

Once I left the nature center, I was feeling hungry and wanted to get something to eat. I asked a few locals where I could get some good food and was led to a great cafe on High St. I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant and also loved the friendly service. I ordered a club sandwich and a side of fries, and it was delicious. The great food and friendly service make eating at the cafe a must for anyone in Jefferson City. I'll be sure to eat there again, during my next visit to the city.
