Come make some memories in St. Joseph. There are some things you just can't learn from a history book, like seeing firsthand where the Pony Express began and the infamous Jesse James ended.

You'll find great outdoor recreation throughout the area, whether chasing trophy catfish or floating on the Missouri River, fishing in one of their beautiful parks or conservation areas, exploring Remington Nature Center or taking advantage of the city's 48 parks and 26 miles of pristine Parkway trails. St. Joseph is home to 13 distinctive museums and galleries, including the Pony Express Museum, the Patee House, Jesse James' home, the Wyeth-Tootle Mansion, the Albrecht-Kemper Art Museum and many more. There's also 12 annual festivals, outdoor concerts, delicious dining, amazing architecture listed on the National Register of Historic Places and an arts culture like no other. The Missouri Western campus in St. Joseph is home to the Kansas City Chiefs Training Camp.

Located at the crossroads of Interstate 29 and MO Highway 36 and only 30 minutes from North Kansas City, St. Joseph is waiting for you.
