Overview of Missouri Geography and Culture
Missouri is located almost at the exact center of the United States.
Surrounded by Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Arkansas, it borders the largest number of other states for any state in the country (though tied with Tennessee). It is a medium-sized state and has a population of over 6 million. Its most populated cities are St. Louis and Kansas City. Jefferson City is Missouri’s capital and the political focal point of the state. The St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Blues, and various Mizzou teams are some of the state’s main features in sports. Missouri has numerous highways spanning most or all of the state, including the Historic Route 66. A few notable people from the state are Check Berry, Maya Angelou, Mark Twain, and Harry Truman. With numerous law schools, many come here to become a Missouri injury lawyer.
If you didn’t already know, Missouri is a hidden gem.
