Local Attractions
Excelsior Springs offers an interesting and eclectic mix of shopping districts, history, eating establishments and cultural opportuities. Historically, Excelsior Springs meant excellence in tourism and health. Visitors flocked to Excelsior Springs health spas, clinics, hotels, restaurants and entertainment establishments.

Although the mineral water industry declined in the 1960's, the mineral waters are still available inside the Hall of Waters, the mineral water baths can still be "taken" locally and much of the historic fabric of the original town can been seen in a revitalized downtown shopping district. Those who like to spend time on the golf course will find an outstanding course in Excelsior Springs. Tom Bendelow, world famous golf course architect, designed the course layout at the Excelsior Springs Golf Course. The golf course is a valuable historic asset to the community as well as a great course to play.

A Living History Program provides scheduled activities on weekends. Also 15 minutes from Excelsior Springs is the home of Frank and Jesse James, who were born on a farm three miles northeast of the city.

Of Special Interest
A day at the Inn on Crescent Lake brings many options. The lake has paddleboats, a rowboat, and a bass fishing boat for guest enjoyment. Bring a fishing pole and try your luck in catching a bass, sunnie, or catfish in our stocked ponds. Walk our trail hand-in-hand with your loved one or play badminton or croquet on the front lawn. As summertime takes hold, and the sun fills the property, the swimming pool is the perfect place to relax and read a book. In the winter, there is nothing like the warmth of the solarium to watch the snow fall on the expansive front lawn. Pamper yourself with a massage scheduled with a licensed masseuse in our massage room or hop into our year-round outdoor hot tub and watch the moon and stars above.
