Although Missouri has no official nickname it is known as the “Show Me” state. It is a combination of grassy plains, the forested Ozark Mountains, over 6,000 caves and is bordered on the east by the Mississippi River. It became our 24th state on August 10, 1821.
Missouri is home to six National Park units and is part of six National Trails.
