Best known as the home of President Harry Truman and star Ginger Rogers, Independence is a city in Western Missouri. The city is also known as the Queen City of the Trails due to it marking the beginning of three great America trails leading westward,: the Oregon Trail, the Santa Fe Trail and the California Trail.
Top attractions include the historic Independence Square where the three trails began -- visitors here can catch a ride in a covered wagon and get a taste of the olden days. Afterward, see how one of the presidents used to live and work at the Harry S Truman Home National Historic Site, The Harry S Truman Presidential Library and The Harry S Truman Museum, Courtroom and Office.
Over at The National Frontier Trails Museum, discover all about the history of the American West as it was settled, as well as details of the pioneers and trails that formed here. Make sure to check out the Santa-Cali-Gon Days too, an annual festival celebrating the city as the start of the three great American frontier trails.
Stay around Independence Square for easy walking access to everywhere.

— Like the buttons on the calendar which say today, tomorrow - that will make it easy for booking on the road. Website looks great - clean and easy to understand.
— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
