Fun on the water is best enjoyed on hot summer days and there's nothing like the crisp fall air for watching football.

But there's no prescribed season for celebrating the arts, which means it's among the activities to embrace year-round in Missouri, where several arts districts make it convenient for you have diverse experiences on your art-focused outings.


Here's a look at just a few of them:

  • North Village Arts District, Columbia - Strolling along the streets in the downtown area, you find everything from art galleries and studios to interior design shops and live-performance venues.
  • Crossroads Arts District, Kansas City - A hub of creativity in Missouri's largest city, this district boasts more than 100 independent studios and is home to more than 400 artists. Popular restaurants and nightclubs keep the district buzzing.
  • Grand Center, St. Louis - This area encompasses just four square blocks, but it's home to 12 museums and galleries and is the site of more than 1,500 cultural events each year.

Some other fabulous arts districts in Missouri include Englewood Station in Independence, Moon City in Springfield and the Maplewood Arts District in Maplewood.
