West Plains, MO

On the eastern edge of 417-land, West Plains is close enough for a quick trip and far enough away to provide a break from one's usual scenery. With West Plains serving as their hub, visitors can plan day trips to explore nearby natural and historic attractions, including water mills, crystal-clear rivers and springs, as well as hiking and biking trails.

What To Do

Multiple lodging choices await visitors, including a hotel that has been voted number one in the world for guestsatisfaction for five consecutive years. Dining and coffee shop options, two breweries and live music venues are part of an ever-growing arts and entertainment scene. The town's mural collection includes four large works by internationally known Nigerian artist Dr. Bolaji Ogunwo.

Travel Easy

West Plains is the perfect distance for spending a few days, enjoying a long weekend or even for an overnight trip. Visitors can drive over to relax, explore the sights, and then return home feeling rested instead of worn out. With a four-lane highway connecting it to most of southwest Missouri, getting here and back is a breeze.
