"Weston, Missouri" Weston by basstbn

Weston Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 84 photos

Quaint and Charming...

are two adjectives one often hears associated with Weston, Missouri, one of the most popular destinations in the region for day or weekend trips. An important Missouri River port in the mid-1800s, it is now better know for its ante-bellum homes, antique shops, tobacco farms, apple orchards, and wineries.

Fall Color

Many like to make an annual pilgrimmage to Weston for the fall color, about the same time homes tours are taking place, tobacco is in the drying sheds, and apple-picking is taking place. It is difficult to comprehend how such a foul-smelling and contemptable article as a cigarette could come from a product that smells so wonderful while it is curing in these sheds. One of the wonders of nature.

Train Station / City Hall

This restored train station, located at the Missouri River landing area is an example of the town's effort to maintain its old and/or historic buildings. The landing area, in addition to being a busy river port in the 1840s and 50s, was an overnight camping spot for the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 1804.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful old homes, neat shops and dining establishments in the wooded hills along the Missouri River
  • Cons:Parking can be a pain on a busy day
  • In a nutshell:Quaint and charming - just the place for a day trip, or a romantic overnight stay at a B&B
