What Bert Has To Say About Jefferson City Metro Area


Jefferson City, along the Missouri River near the center of the state, is an uninspiring capital somewhat off the beaten path. There are some capital-city amenities and a number of historic buildings and sites especially near the riverfront. Nearby water and state parks provide some outdoor recreation, most notably the Lake of the Ozarks State Park 40 miles south.
