Missouri River Runner

Take a leisurely journey through Missouri on Amtrak’s Missouri River Runner, which runs twice daily between Kansas City and St. Louis. Stops include Jefferson City, where you can explore the state capitol building; Hermann, home of the beautiful Hermann Wine Trail; Sedalia, host of the Missouri State Fair; and more. Through a partnership between Amtrak and the National Park Service, the Trails & Rails program provides educational opportunities for passengers with a National Park Service guide onboard. So sit back, relax and drink in the beauty of the Missouri River as you head to the Gateway to the West.
