Relax and Recharge at Rock Bridge State Park

Ready to explore outdoors? Not far from our Columbia, MO hotel lies Rock Bridge State Park, a must-see for anyone who enjoys trail hiking, biking and horseback riding amid wildflowers in full bloom around beautiful natural rock formations. If it's hot outside, you can duck into the cooler environs of Connor's Cave. Guided tours are also sometimes offered of the larger, aptly named, Devil's Icebox Cave, home to grey bats and its own unique species of flatworm, not found anywhere else. Aboveground, there are weekly tours pointing out the different species of wildflowers that grow here, as well as ample trails and boardwalks open to hikers, bicyclists, and even horses. Afterwards, head back to the Holiday Inn Executive Center Columbia for a bite at the Sports Zone.
