When you're looking for a fun place to visit in Missouri, take a trip to Joplin. The city is filled with parks like the Cunningham and Leonard parks as well as other scenic areas, so you will be able to enjoy your visit without having to spend much money. There are waterfalls, outdoor museums and skate parks. You can also visit the sports complex if you like to stay in shape while you're on vacation.
If you're interested in creatures with scales, you can go to the Reptile World Zoo on Kodiac Road. The zoo has an assortment of snakes and lizards that you can view and even take home. A fun attraction for travelers of all ages is the Route 66 Carousel Park. Here, you can go on one of the carousels, play in the classic arcade, ride the go-carts and see the city from new heights on the Ferris wheel. One of the most beautiful areas of the city is at Grand Falls on Shoal Creek. The falls are 25 feet tall, and you can go swimming in the creek during the warmer months.
When you fly to Joplin Regional Airport (JLN), you'll land in the northern part of the city. The 249 and 49 freeways give you easy access to the heart of the city. In March, you can take part in the city's annual St. Patrick's Day Festival.
