Welcome to Downtown
Welcome to Downtown Jefferson City Missouri! We are the commercial and cultural hub in the middle of Missouri’s tourism, wine, cycling, transportation, historic, and state government country!
The friendly, reinvigorated area of Downtown Jefferson City is our community’s soul.
The same pioneering spirit which founded our city more than two-hundred years ago is embedded in the designs of our downtown historic buildings is burning brighter than ever in the entrepreneurism that has emerged in recent years.
You can feel the energy and optimism in the patterned sidewalks lined with trees, hanging baskets overflowing with flowers, and coordinated lighting and benches. Numerous sidewalk dining venues and coffee shops allow shoppers and workers to linger to enjoy conversation with friends while basking in the sunshine and breeze coming from the Missouri River.
The seat of state government brings thousands of thousands of folks to our Downtown Jefferson City area every workday. Favorite eateries of all types, and casual places to have a beverage of any type, keep visitors and neighbors alike happy and entertained seven days a week.
Downtown Jefferson City visitors can enjoy some of our state’s favorite restaurants, ranging from fine dining establishments to coffee shops and traditional sports bars. Shops in downtown Jefferson City include everything from clothing to vintage furniture to hand-made crafts, and all sorts of other curiosities, with a mix of long-established and more modern businesses standing side-by-side throughout the city. Our city center’s treelined streets offer benches for visitors to use while enjoying coffee, frozen yogurt, and other treats while taking in the city’s atmosphere.
