Missouri is nicknamed “The Show Me State” and is located in the Midwestern United States. The land that is now Missouri was acquired from France as part of the Louisiana Purchase and became known as the Missouri Territory. Missouri’s geography is highly varied. The northern part of the state lies in dissected till plains while the southern part lies in the Ozark Mountains, with the Missouri river dividing the two. The state lies at the intersection of the three greatest rivers of North America: Mississippi, Missouri and Ohio rivers. Missouri generally has a humid continental climate with cold winters and hot, humid summers. However, spa business is not yet very well developed, so resorts with a high quality spa treatments are quite hard to find.
