From hiking to shopping, you'll find fun things to do in and around Columbia. Just about every interest is served, whether it's cheering on the Mizzou Tigers or taking in the latest art exhibit at the Bingham Gallery on campus. If it's a culinary adventure you seek, hit the sidewalks of the District which is Columbia's dynamic downtown neighborhood of restaurants and shops. Need some fresh air? Rock Bridge Memorial State Park is a favorite destination for experiencing Missouri's natural beauty.
Just minutes from downtown are two wonderful Missouri State Parks. Rock Bridge Memorial is a great place for cave exploration and picnics. Katy Trail runs along the River, and is popular for hiking and cycling.
