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.
