Welcome to Columbia, MO

This article is published in partnership with Visit Columbia, MO and Visit the SEC.

The Mizzou Tiger fans here in Columbia, MO (you can call us CoMo) are thrilled to welcome Gator to our city for a football showdown the weekend of November 10th. We know your main goal is to watch the action on the field,  but we have a lot to explore when you’re not cheering on your Tigers.

Things To Do

Take the time to explore our vibrant downtown. Known as The District and adjacent to Mizzou’s campus, it’s perfect for grabbing a drink or a meal, shopping, viewing public art and just enjoying the game day atmosphere. Favorites like Bluestem Missouri Crafts, Boone Olive Oil, The Candy Factory, Poppy and Makes Scents will give you a chance to take something from CoMo home with you! You really can spend hours exploring all of the shops and sights.

-Be sure to head just beyond The District’s official boundaries and check out the North Village Arts District. Formerly an industrial area, NVAD is now home to art galleries, artists in residence, Dogmaster Distillery, and quaint coffee shops and restaurants.

Get outside and check out some of CoMo’s green spaces. Spots like Stephens Lake Park and Rock Bridge Memorial State Park are gorgeous in the fall and provide great hiking and leisure options. Up for a challenge? Check out the MKT Trail, which links up nine miles south of Columbia with the statewide Katy Trail, the nation’s largest rails-to-trails project.
