A New Franklin, Missouri bed and breakfast can be your choice for lodging accommodations in the central region of the state. This area is rich in historical significance. The Santa Fe Trail was a transportation route connecting MO with Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Katy Trail, also in the area, is a 225 mile bike path and America’s longest “rails-to-trails” project. Over half of it follows the Lewis and Clark Trail up the Missouri River beneath towering bluffs.
Lewis and Clark reported the presence of saltwater springs in the area, the largest of them being Boone’s Lick. It was named after the sons of Daniel Boone, Nathan and Daniel, who produced salt from the springs. Today, the 52 acre site features picnic facilities and a winding trail to the remnants of the salt works.
Had enough of a history lesson, take a break by visiting Les Bourgeois Winery and Vineyards known for its spectacular view of the Missouri River Valley. The Vineyard produces award-winning wines and features fine bistro cuisine.
Then, retire to your room at a member of the Bed and Breakfast Inns of Missouri.
