Best of Show: Have a Relaxing Fall Getaway on the Katy Trail

The Katy Trail, in all of its 237.7-mile glory stretching across the state of Missouri (from Clinton to St. Charles), is quite a sight to see. In fact, it’s so breathtaking, the Travel Channel included it among the top 15 Relaxing Fall Getaways in the United States.


Whether you are biking, hiking or just going for a walk, you can rest assured you can do just that – relax and explore. If taking in the majestic beauty while doing any of these activities is overwhelming, you have quite a few options to rest indoors.

According to, there are more than 75 B & Bs readily available to people traveling along the trail.  These establishments pride themselves offering exceptional service to those who need rest and recuperation.
