Pulaski County USA- Experiences Required!

Experience Pulaski County’s 33 miles of Route 66! The legendary Main Street of America will lead you to:

• Ozark Mountain scenic wonders
• engineering marvels
• nostalgic roadhouses and diners
• chef-owned restaurants
• trophy trout streams & feisty smallmouth bass fishing
• countless acres of Mark Twain National Forest to explore
• canoeing and kayaking on the Big Piney & Gasconade rivers
• antique and boutique shopping
• museums and more!

Devils Elbow, long known for its rugged beauty and plentiful fishing, is an Instagram worthy destination. Don’t miss the Sugar Bowl bluff, Shelden’s Market & Post Office, the world-famous Elbow Inn, and the 1923 steel two-span through truss bridge. Nearby Hooker Cut was once the deepest cut ever made for road construction.

Devils Elbow Not all who wander are lost

1923 Route 66 Bridge, Devils Elbow

Saint Robert, established in 1951, celebrates its roots as the gateway to Fort Leonard Wood with several military monuments and memorials placed through-out the town. The City commissioned mural painter Bubba Sorenson to create a stunning, patriotic Freedom Rock on St. Robert Boulevard in 2017. Grab a take-out lunch from the retro 1950’s Route 66 Diner and picnic at George M. Reed Roadside Park. The park is one of only two remaining roadside parks on Route 66 in Missouri. It is also the future home of the Route 66 Neon Park. Looking for lodging? From branded nationwide hotels to mom and pop Route 66 motels to Airbnb rentals, Saint Robert has you and your family covered!

Saint Robert, Missouri

The quirky and whimsical Frog Rock cheerfully greets you as you descend into Waynesville, the county seat. The charming town square hosts two museums- Old Stagecoach Stop and Route 66 Courthouse Museum. The Henry H. Hohenschild designed courthouse served Pulaski County citizens from 1903 until 1989. Both museums are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are open to the public (limited hours) April through September. Photographers and artists will be drawn to many buildings that line Route 66 in town. History buffs and nature lovers will want to tour Laughlin Park’s Trail of Tears Memorial and Roubidoux Spring. Driving an RV? Stay at the city’s Roubidoux Spring Campground & RV Park. Dining, shopping, and trophy trout fishing are all within walking distance of the campground!

Old Stagecoach Stop, Waynesville

Route 66 isn’t the only timeless path through Pulaski County. Highway 133, designated in the 1930’s follows a military trail that was blazed during the Civil War. During 1869 the Southwest Pacific Railroad (later the Frisco Railroad) laid tracks along this route and Dixon, Crocker, and Richland were born. Today, these former boom towns are home to unique eats, historic architecture, Midwestern charm, and fun festivals.

Some people say that Pulaski County is always celebrating something. They’re right! Families love Old Settlers Day (July), Railroad Days (August), Cow Days (September), and county fairs in both Saint Robert and Richland in June. Numerous other festivals, events, performances, rodeos, and tournaments attract visitors from across the United States to Pulaski County each year.

July 28 & 29 Old Settlers Day
