Fun in Joplin

In addition to being popular eye care specialists in the area, we are experts in all the things to do in Joplin, MO. Set in the southwestern corner of Missouri, Downtown Joplin and the Sunshine Lamp District are home to many restaurants, stores and art galleries. Take a drive down historic Route 66, one of the nation’s original highways, which traverses eight states on the way from Chicago to Los Angeles. Sample some authentic Missouri foods from local diners such as Applebee’s, Beckett’s Café, and Buffalo Wild Wings.

To view majestic scenery, head to the Grand Falls, known as the largest natural waterfall in Missouri. Water flows and crashes 12 feet down from a 163 foot rock ledge. If you’re in the mood for a nice walk, Campbell Parkway is ideal. Over a mile of trails wind their way around and over Joplin Creek. However, if your time for strolling is more limited and you prefer staying in the shade, try the paved trails of Leonard Park, which also boasts playground units for kids.

There is no shortage of historic sites to visit in and near Joplin, MO. Set within a 240-acre national park, the George Washington Carver National Monument is worth viewing. A museum, discovery center and theater are also featured here, along with the 1881 Moses Carver house, a lovely nature trail and a contemplative trail. To maximize your time, you can join one of the daily guided tours. Architecture lovers should not miss a trip through the Murphysburg District, where many of the founding fathers of Joplin build magnificent residences. Some of the original homes still exist and represent various building styles, such as American Foursquare, Craftsman and Queen Ann. Plaques with information about the homes are posted throughout the neighborhood.

The most impressive home and garden attraction in Joplin, MO, is Sandstone Gardens. This sprawling construction wows all visitors with its 50,000-square-foot showroom, filled with botanical collections and Euro-stones.
