Missouri hideouts and hangouts Meramec Caverns, Stanton, Missouri: Meramec was a longtime must-see on All-American road trips, and pop culture still lurks everywhere on the cave tour. Jesse James hid out along the underground river. A side room hosted honeymooners for 10 days in a 1950s' TV stunt, and an episode of Lassie--the one where Lassie rescues Timmy--was filmed inside. #VisitMOtreasures
Trip down I-44 in Missouri : News The Fugitive Beach in Rolla is an old quarry that has been turned into a tourist attraction. You can zoom down a 60-foot slide or jump off 15 or 20 foot cliffs. Or just take a swim, float or play volleyball on the sand beach.
