There are a plethora of options when it comes to shopping, dining, living, or even simply visiting the north Jefferson City area and its surrounding communities. I want to share with you a couple of my favorite key locations that you really must visit while you’re in town! 


Start your morning with CameroN’s Country Cafe. Family owned and operated, they have all your country-style favorites at great prices!

Morning activity: 

Hit the largest public driving range in Jefferson City, play a round of putt-putt, or choose to play two 9-hole, par-3 courses at Turkey Creek Golf Center. You can also enjoy a round of golf at Railwood Golf Club.


Stop into Blu Taco to try their burritos, quesadillas, salads, bowls, and of course their blue corn tacos and nachos.  

Afternoon Activity: 

Visit Fisher Farms (they are open seasonally). Take in the beautiful sites at the Quigg Commons. If you’re looking for an indoor activity, shop at Dis-N-Dat Antiques.


Grab a couple of appetizers or split a small pizza from Pizza Works.

Evening Activity: 

Take a stroll on the Katy Trail, or visit the North Jefferson City Recreation Area, including the Noren River Access, for more family-friendly fun! And be sure to time your visit just right to take in the Missouri River Pedestrian Bike Bridge’s breathtaking view as you watch the mid-western sunset over the Missouri River.


One thing you must try is Canterbury Hill Winery and Restaurant! Savor your meal with a gorgeous view on their back patio or cozy up next to their fireplace.  


Enjoy dessert at Mellby’s Chill Zone with some ice cream or a snow cone.
