Debi and Amanda of the Kirksville Tourism Department share insights on Kirksville's best treasures and offer suggestions about what to do, where to go, and how to play in your own backyard.
Take a Tour… right in your own backyard!
One of our targeted focuses for Tourism is the group travel market. In order to make it easier for large groups to visit Kirksville, we create sample itineraries to distribute with suggested ideas.
We have decided to share those suggestions with our readers here, so that you can see the hidden gems we show our guests! In many cases, our office works directly with businesses to set up tours. If you and a group of friends are interested in a tour, but don’t know where to start- give us a call. We are happy to help!
