Joplin

— 3 nights
Joplin or is a city in southern Jasper County and northern Newton County in the southwestern corner of the U.S. state of Missouri. Attractions like Safari Zoological Park and Cunningham Park make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Bentonville (Museum of Native American History, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, &more), Gary's Garage Museum (in Caney) and Bowling Ball Yard Art (in Nowata). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Grand Falls, identify plant and animal life at The Wildcat Glades Conservation & Audubon Center, grab your bike and head to Frisco Greenway Trail, and steep yourself in history at Bonnie and Clyde's Joplin Garage Apartment Hideout.
