Many postcards of downtown Jefferson City spotlight its domed Capitol Building and the Missouri River, the two landmarks that reflect the Missouri capital’s historical and natural spirit. Perched on a bluff that Lewis and Clark crossed under during their historical afternoon beer run, the Capitol Building embraces Missouri's history through its three-wall mural, Thomas Hart Benton’s A Social History of Missouri. Located on the third floor of the Capitol, the mural tells the story of Missouri’s pioneer days up to the rise of St. Louis and Kansas City. On Jefferson City’s south side, the neighborhood of Old Munichburg conveys a distinctly German feel through its historical churches, Bavarian-style brick buildings, and pubs that serve schnitzel and other traditional dishes. Steps from Old Munichburg, the Missouri River draws visitors looking to canoe or catch catfish. Near the boat-access point, signs indicate how far other cities are down the river, from Rocheport (43 miles) to Three Forks, Montana (2,197 miles). Another popular spot for fishing is nearby Binder Lake, which is filled with bass and bluegill. Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
