Independence is the fifth-largest city in the state of Missouri. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Little Blue Trace Trail and Lake Remembrance. Visiting Lost Valley Fish Hatchery & Visitor Center and Knob Noster State Park will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Independence side-trips: Smithville Lake (in Smithville), Watkins Mill State Park (in Lawson) and Wallace State Park (in Cameron). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Harry S. Truman Library and Museum, explore the landscape on two wheels at Champion Bicycles, steep yourself in history at Harry S Truman National Historic Site, and see the interesting displays at Jail, Marshal's Home & Museum.
