I've always thought that the air quality in Missouri was decent and it looks like the experts agree - for the most part. While most of the Show Me State gets passing grades for air quality, the same can't be said for St. Louis which flunked miserably.
I know that people see objects in nature that look like something else and most of the time it's wacky. In this case, I think it's absolutely accurate to say that a rock along a wild Missouri biking trail really does look like a whale. It seriously does.
Everyone says they love hiking, but how many actually do it? If you're in the "do it" crowd in Missouri, I can show you the highest-rated hiking trail in the Show Me State. Spoiler Alert - it's full of sweet river views everywhere you look.
Here's a headscratcher for you. A new report claims that more people are moving to Saint Louis, Missouri because of perceived climate change. Hmm. Let's see if we can figure out two things. First if the report is accurate and second, if so, why?
If I said that I had found numbers to show you how likely you are to get murdered in Missouri, you would probably assume that's a bad thing. It really isn't. I'll try to show you that despite the bad rap the Show Me State gets for violent crime, it might not be as bad as you thought.
For me, being considered middle class would be a promotion. However, I was a little surprised by the number actually considered the minimum to be included in that financial group in Missouri. Spoiler Alert - it's likely higher than you think.
