PULASKI COUNTY, MISSOURI- Beth Wiles, Executive Director of Pulaski County Tourism Bureau & Visitors Center has announced that JR Travelers, based out of New Baden, Illinois overnighted in Saint Robert April 28th and 29th at Red Roof Inn.

The motor coach group arrived in Pulaski County Monday morning and was greeted by Pulaski County Tourism Bureau staff at the Visitors Center. Members of the travel group received welcome bags containing local travel information and refreshments while at the center. They toured Fort Leonard Wood, had lunch at one of the installations dining facilities, and visited Mahaffey Museum Complex- home of three U.S. Army Branch Museums. That evening the group took advantage of the unique opportunity to dine at the nation’s only restaurant inside a cave at The Cave Restaurant & Resort.

The group visited nearby Springfield, Missouri Tuesday before returning to their base in St. Robert for the night.

Wednesday, April 30th the group toured Route 66 in Pulaski County and lunched at Hopper’s Pub on the Square in Waynesville. They were also able to explore the historic Square area and visited charming shops and boutiques before boarding the bus bound for another unique Pulaski County gem- Dream House Dolls, one of the largest vintage Barbie distributors in the United States.

JR Travelers will also visit St. James Winery as part of their return trip to Illinois.

Karen Hood, Marketing Relations Manager and Group Tour Coordinator for Pulaski County Tourism Bureau remarked that she was “thrilled that Jan Rensing, owner & operator of JR Travelers chose Saint Robert as the hub for their I-44 corridor travel. The group spent the majority of their time in our local area and were able to experience things that are uniquely Pulaski County- including our famous hospitality.”

Wiles added that “National Travel & Tourism Week kicks off this Saturday, May 3rd, and having this group of visitors out and about in downtown Waynesville really drives the point of the impact that tourism makes in our economy. When you hear the items being rang up at the corner gift shop it strikes home more so than statistics on a piece of paper. This makes a difference, tourism makes a difference.”
