Rocheport is proud to be named “Best Mid-Missouri Small Town’ by Inside Columbia Magazine’s 2013 readers’ poll. Here’s the scoop:
Best Mid-Missouri Small Town
1825 was a really good year. That was when the little trading post of Rocheport established itself as a town, and started on the path to becoming Columbia’s favorite neighbor. There’s history everywhere in the charming little town. From the General Store to the amenity-laden bed and breakfasts to the restaurants that have everyone raving, Rocheport is worth the 20-minute drive and a Saturday afternoon. Just head west on I-70; you can’t miss it.

Area fine dining options have expanded to include four-course dinners and a Sunday brunch aboard the Columbia Star Dinner Train.
The Columbia Star utilizes two vintage streamlined passenger locomotives (1948 and 1953) to pull three restored 1938 dining cars on a 42 mile round trip to Centralia, Missouri on the old Wabash Railroad tracks. The trip takes a leisurely three hours. Capacity is 200 people. A former baggage car has been converted into a full kitchen.
Columbia Star guests are treated to a full wait staff and bar. Appetizers, drinks, and an elegant four-course meal are prepared on the train. Diners get full white linen, fine china, and candlelight service.
This service is available year round with Friday and Saturday departures at 7 p.m. and a Sunday brunch departing at 11:30 a.m.
