Missouri’s Parkland, located just one hour south of St. Louis, is home to Missouri’s most beautiful State Parks, Arcadia Valley, and many of the region’s premier vineyards and wineries. The St. Francois mountains, rivers and streams, and beautiful agricultural landscapes make the area one of the most scenic and beautiful areas in the Midwest. Farmington is the regional center for commerce, industry, and healthcare services, as well as dining, arts and entertainment. Downtown Farmington, nestled around East Liberty Street and West Columbia Street, is the hub of the city. The downtown area is home to City Hall, the Court House, Farmington Public Library, Police Department, Fire Department, and many other buildings important to the city. Many original brick buildings still stand in operation today as homes and businesses. Walk the main streets to window shop the many boutiques and dine in one of a kind restaurants. The historic jail-house has been converted into a hostel for bicycle riders coming through the city.
