COLUMBIA — Most travel guides tell you where to get a good meal, how to plan a relaxing weekend away from the city or which five-star hotel has the best towels.

This is not that kind of travel guide.

These pages will tell you an entirely different sort of thing: how to experience the weird persona of Missouri you never expected. Use this as a handbook on a journey from the awesome to the outright freakish attractions Missouri has to offer. You can even look at this as a choose-your-own-adventure book that will lead you all over the state.

No matter which path you choose, these options promise an oddball adventure. This guide is not for your typical Sunday outing, so leave your low expectations at home, raise the bar and open your mind to the weirdness Missouri has to offer.
