Audrain County is full of hunting attractions. It is a quiet county resplendent with spectacular naturist views. Located in the U.S state of Missouri, Audrain County was formed in 1836. Named after Col. James Hunter Audrain, Audrain County is flanked by counties such as Monroe, Ralls, Pike, Montgomery, Callaway, Boone, and Randolph.

Audrain County Historical Society is a famous name. Located in the Robert S. Green Park, there are some museums located here. They are namely Graceland Museum, and American Saddlebred Horse Museum.

Graceland Museum is considered to be a historical museum nationally. It was formerly a mansion which was then converted to a museum. During the American civil war, Colonel Ulysses stayed here.

Visitors can see the beautifully dressed rooms in this mansion-museum. Victorian architecture is in vivid display, and the architecture still resonates the beauty of the America’s rich history.

The American Saddlebred Horse Museum is dedicated to Graceland. It exhibits rare and unique pieces that will capture your attention and interest.

At Audrain County, and at the Audrain County Historical Society is located the Country School. Placed among lush settings, the school is a cute cozy outfit in the middle of picturesque settings. Constructed in the early part of the nineteenth century, the Country School reflects the olden day school building architecture.

In the same vicinity is the Country Church. It was built in the 1800s. This is a trans-located church. It was brought to the Audrain County Historical Society premises part by part before re-building it here. The church is beautifully set amongst serene settings, and is a must visit for new visitors at the Audrain County.



Vacations On A Budget

Maybe that vacation that you planned had to be scrapped, there just was not enough extra money to go around.  Now you have some time off and you just want to have some down time with the family.  Maybe there are places to go where you don’t have to run the charge cards ragged and come home without enough money to purchase a gallon of milk for the cereal you are going to be eating for dinner for the next month.  There are always ways to do the vacation cheaper.  A week at an amusement park can be absolutely prohibitive in terms of cash flow.  Bottles of water costing more than $5.00 a piece.  Most people would not spend that for a whole case of water, back in the real world, where we live and where we work.

There are places to go that can be interesting and fun, without breaking the bank.  There are places to visit across this great land of ours that are not well advertised, not huge tourist attractions.  Maybe you can take this vacation to learn where our vegetables are grown, learn how to milk a cow, or visit the livestock farms in places such as Audrain County, Missouri.  Little known places like Audrain County are rich in culture, have lots of tourist attractions that don’t cost an arm and a leg.  You can learn how to milk a cow, you can see how livestock are taken care of, and at the end of the day, you can have dinner in a family style restaurant, sampling the foods that are local to the area.

It does not take a lot of money to have a great vacation, but it can take a little planning.  With a little research a family can uncover lots of things that make this country so great.
