While in Waynesville enjoy Roubidoux Park and Laughlin Park. Both parks provide access to the Roubidoux River and are connected by a paved walking trail. Roubidoux Park is home to Old Settlers Days and the annual Cave State Cruisers Car Show. The park also features occasional concerts under the bandshell and pavilions for picnicking and gatherings. Roubidoux Park’s newest addition is Little Heroes Playground, an all-accessible play area. Laughlin Park includes the world-famous Roubidoux Spring and the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail Cherokee Campsite. Seven interpretative signs have been installed between the spring and the former ford (river crossing) just north of the bridge. History enthusiasts will also want to explore the 1903 Route 66 Courthouse Museum and the Old Stagecoach Stop– both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Pulaski County Tourism Bureau offers a free downtown Waynesville Walking Tour brochure. It can be found at many of the one-of-a-kind eateries, gift boutiques, or antique stores on the Square or at the Pulaski County Visitors Center.

Visitors to Fort Leonard Wood shouldn’t miss Mahaffey Museum Complex. This is the only place in the country where you can tour three United State Army branch museums- the Military Police Museum, the Chemical Corps Museum, and the Engineer Museum, in a single location. An outdoor museum includes the World War II Company Area- a collection of restored, temporary mobilization buildings. These structures were some of the very first to be erected at Fort Leonard Wood. They depict the conditions that soldiers and soldiers-in-training would have experienced in the days leading up to, and during the duration of, WWII. A historic driving tour map can be obtained at the Front Gate Visitors Center. Miller Cave, Stone Mill Spring, and Piney Valley Golf Course should also be included on your itinerary!

Historic Route 66 ties the communities of Saint Robert and Waynesville together. Much more than a road, Route 66 is also a world-famous destination. Observant visitors and residents will notice Route 66 travelers in groups, and solo, through-out the year. Thirty-three miles of the fabled Mother Road cross Pulaski County from east to west and many “roadies” recognize Pulaski County’s stretch as one of the most scenic on the eight-state route. Pulaski County Tourism Bureau offers a free turn-by-turn brochure that includes vintage photographs and historical notes. It can be found at many of the hotels, outfitters, eateries, boutiques, antique stores, museums, and attractions throughout Saint Robert and Waynesville or at the Pulaski County Visitors Center.
