Missouri is home to the Ozark mountainous landscapes. The state is also the 21st largest according to land size and the18th most populated. Missouri lies in the United States’ Midwestern region, surrounded by grassy plains, rushing rivers, lush forests, and serene lakes.
The state derives its two famous nicknames, the Mother of the West and the Show-Me State, from its rich history.
By the way, if you are researching ATVs and Quads, we have the differences between both here.
