Missouri enjoyed what appears to be good growth during the summer tourism season and is looking forward to a profitable autumn. State Tourism Director John Robinson says bus tours from Missouri’s bordering states and beyond picked up during the fall. And Robinson says a small part of the marketing budget is spent on getting British tourists to come to Missouri. He says they are fascinated by Mark Twain, Jesse James, and fly fishing in southern parts of the state. He adds a favorbale exchange rate also makes Missouri a bargain for the English.
