Independence is the fifth-largest city in the state of Missouri. Your inner history buff will appreciate Harry S Truman National Historic Site and Bothwell Lodge State Historic Site. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Harry S. Truman Library and Museum and Bingham Waggoner Estate. Explore Independence's surroundings by going to Watkins Mill State Park (in Lawson), Saint Joseph (Missouri Theatre & Glore Psychiatric Museum) and Jesse James Birthplace Museum (in Kearney). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Independence Square, take an in-depth tour of National Frontier Trails Museum, try your luck at Harrah's North Kansas City Casino, and steep yourself in history at Fort Osage.
