Iconic Independence, Missouri

Independence, Missouri is a quaint historical city and was home to Harry S. Truman. If you are a history buff, Independence is the place to visit. With its historic homes, civil war battlegrounds and many museums, it truly captures the essence of American heritage. When I visited the city of Independence recently, I fell in love with the historic downtown area. There were many unique and unusual shops to explore and the Clinton Soda Fountain Shop is like stepping back into time. It was a nice place to stop for an old-fashioned ice cream sundae. Although Independence does not offer any lively nightlife activities, there are plenty of attractions and things to do geared toward family fun. There is a water park, nature trails and wagon rides through the historical districts. Another point of interest is the Puppetry Arts Institute, which offers shows daily. Perfect for people who are interested in American history or for family entertainment, Independence is a great place to visit. It offers small town charm and down-home personality to all of its visitors.
