Fall for all

Follow the brick path in our historic downtown for the Sculpture Walk, treat yourself to dinner at one of several unique restaurants and then take in a show at the Missouri Theater. Enjoy the view of fall foliage along the rolling Missouri River and bluffs at the Remington Nature Center. Make your own memories at our 13 distinct museums and 15 annual festivals. Get inspired at the one and only Walter Cronkite Memorial, check out the unusual Glore Psychiatric Museum or stop by the nationally acclaimed Patee House Museum, which is a former 1860s Wild West hotel.

Holiday cheer

Winter brings even more special moments when Krug and Hyde parks magically transform into Holiday Park, Northwest Missouri’s largest electrically lit holiday display. Distinctive shops and coffee spots help shake off the chill when exploring the festive building and window displays in the heart of St. Joseph. And the Holidays Downtown celebration includes lighted carriage rides and visits with Santa, plus plenty of opportunities to shop for your family and friends.
