  • Tell us about Missouri

    Missouri is known as The Show Me State. Population is about 5.7 million people. This state ranks 17th in population and 18th in area. The capital of Missouri is Jefferson City. The largest city in Missouri, is Kansas City, which surprises me. I thought it was St. Louis. The distance between Kansas City and Disneyland is about 1625 miles, about 200 miles closer than St. Louis and Disneyland.

    Missouri is very close to Illinois, but yet I have never been there. I know a few people from St. Louis, Missouri, and they are very happy to now call Chicago their home. I think of Missouri, I think of cardinals. I think of cardinals, I think of my brother. He was a Chicago football Cardinals fan. That team went first to St. Louis and then to Arizona,

    What can you share with us about the state of Missouri?

      MickeysGirl - I think you hit all the big ticket items.
      I was born in Hannibal, Missouri and lived there twice in my lifetime.
      Hannibal was the home of Mark Twain and the Unsinkable Molly Brown.
      Every 4th of July, Hannibal has Huck Finn days where people particpate in whitewashing the fence. You can visit, Tom and Becky's house and the Injun Joe cave.
      Hannibal also has the only inland lighthouse!
