Plan to stay at a Mexico, Missouri bed and breakfast as an alternative to hotel lodging when you travel to Audrain County.
Mexico, MO was once noted as the “Saddlebred Horse Capital of the World”. Established in 1970, the Saddlebred Horse Museum, with its equestrian memorabilia, is the oldest in the country. The first saddle horses in the county were brought to what is now Graceland Museum. Graceland, an antebellum mansion hosting Ulysses S. Grant during the early years of the Civil War, is listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
Located in Central Missouri about an hour and a half from the state capital, Jefferson City, Mexico is known for its Midwestern hospitality. The Mississippi River and Katy Trail are found in this region. Columbia, MO is less than an hour away, where you can attend the Roots ‘N Blues ‘N BBQ Festival as well as visiting art galleries, the Missouri Symphony, and the University of Missouri.
The area lakes, ponds, streams, and the Missouri River offer opportunities for fishing and other water sports. Hunters will find game and waterfowl in many of the conservation areas, and there are numerous trails for hikers and wildlife watchers.
When you stay at an inspected and approved member inn of the Bed and Breakfast Inns of Missouri, you are assured superior quality and professional innkeepers.
